Afternoon Concert is a Music programme.


Afternoon Concert

In the first of two concerts, Penny Gore presents works inspired by musical trends from the USA. Ravel's Piano Concerto in G is heavily influenced by the sounds of jazz, which Ravel heard during a US concert tour in 1928, and in Dvorak's Symphony No 9 'From the New World', the composer draws inspiration on the music of native Americans. The second concert showcases the orchestra in works from the Classical era, Haydn's Symphony 'La Passione', and Mozart's Piano Concerto No 22 in E flat, K.482, performed by Philippe Cassard, the leading French broadcaster and pianist. Ravel: Piano Concerto in G. Dvorak: Symphony No 9 'From the New World'. Jean-Yves Thibaudet(piano), Radio France Philharmonic/Mikko Franck. Haydn: Symphony in F minor, Hob.I:49 'La Passione'.
