Programme Note

The National Youth Orchestra of Scotland frames the turbulent and virtuosic Second Piano Concerto by Tchaikovsky with the final part of Helen Grime’s new two-part work for orchestra (see also Prom 27) and the second of this weekend’s trio of Stravinsky ballet scores.

With The Firebird of 1910, Stravinsky was immediately recognised as the most important musical voice of the new century. His relentless rhythmic drive and hypnotising orchestral colours are heard to full advantage in a performance of the complete ballet under the charismatic Ilan Volkov.
