WHAT'S ON / Scottish Chamber Orchestra: Bizet Symphony in C

Stravinsky: Concerto in E-flat ‘Dumbarton Oaks’
Shostakovich: Piano Concerto No 2
Ravel: Pavane pour une infante défunte
Bizet: Symphony in C

Alexandre Bloch: conductor; Anika Vavić: piano

Music to amuse, entertain and inspire: young French conductor Alexandre Bloch’s sparkling concert shows four composers at their most jovial in beautifully crafted works full of wit and ingenuity.

Bizet wrote his exuberant Symphony in C at the age of just 17, and it clearly displays his youthful high spirits. Serbian pianist Anika Vavić is the soloist in Shostakovich’s warm-hearted Second Piano Concerto, full of rich melody and even a joke at the expense of his son, the Concerto’s first soloist. Bloch opens his concert with the intimate invention of Stravinsky’s zesty, Bach-inspired ‘Dumbarton Oaks’ Concerto.
