Festival Details - "Sir George Benjamin: A Duet and a Dream"...

Part of Contemporary Edit

Janácek spins the opening fanfare into new colours and melodies, exploring fascinating harmonies in 20 thrilling minutes of music.

The piece ends in triumph when the fanfare returns in a glorious version for full orchestra.

In the first half, an atmospheric early work by Benjamin’s friend Oliver Knussen sets the scene for Messiaen’s interpretation of the song of the blue rock thrush, and Benjamin’s intricate Duet for Piano and Orchestra.

The Duet was written for tonight’s soloist Pierre-Laurent Aimard, a revered performer of 20th- and 21st-century music.
