HANNAH KENDALL — Tuxedo Vasco 'de' Gama
MAURICE RAVEL — Le Tombeau de Couperin, version for orchestra
LUCIANO BERIO — Folk Songs, version for mezzo-soprano and orchestra
LOUISE FARRENC — Symphony No.3 in G minor, Op. 36
A concert by instrumentalists with a bright future is always a captivating experience! As music director of the MYO, Duncan Ward offers a sensitive and engaged programme and above all inspires the musicians and gives them centre stage. Hannah Kendall is an up-and-coming composer of today; and her Tuxedo Vasco 'de' Gama, inspired by the painter Jean-Michel Basquiat, is a veritable gem. Louise Farrenc’s work is beginning to receive well-deserved acclaim. And Berio’s Folk Songs are enhanced by the warm timbre of Anna Stephany.
