Trumpeter Lucienne Renaudin Vary, praised by Concertonet for her ‘masterful technique in... smoothly delivered trills and arpeggios’, raises the curtain with Duke Ellington's smooth In a Sentimental Mood Violinist Leticia Moreno introduces a Spanish flavour to the evening with a selection of the Canciones Populaires espagnolas followed by accordionist Ksenija Sidorova, called ‘superbly subtle and virtuosic’ by The Arts Desk, who takes the stage with cellist Alban Gerhardt for a special arrangement of Piazzolla’s Grand Tango. The starry line-up continues with soprano and conductor Barbara Hannigan who joins pianist Tamara Stefanovich in songs from her prize-winning album Vienna: Fin de Siécle (Alpha Classics) which features music from Wolf, Zemlinsky, Alma Mahler and members of the Second Viennese School. The purity of a solo Bach cello suite (Alban Gerhardt) opens the second half and then, changing the mood, Patricia Kopatchinskaja and Pekka Kuusisto, ground-breaking star violinists, combine in a wild selection of virtuosic duos. This includes the first performance of a short piece by Peter Eötvös written specially for the HP50 anniversary entitled For Lydia and based on the Lydian mode.  HarrisonParrott web site.
