Orchestra of Opera North
Joanna MacGregor’s peerless skill as a classical pianist has always been animated by her openness to other genres, making her the ideal soloist for Gershwin’s jazz and blues-inflected Piano Concerto which pulsates with the syncopated rhythmsof the Roaring Twenties.
Completing this vibrant programme is popular orchestral showpiece Pictures at an Exhibition, with the orchestra under Sian Edwards’ baton wringing vivid colours from Ravel’s magical orchestration of Mussorgsky’s suite.
