Ravel’s delicate Le Tombeau de Couperin prefaces Swiss composer Richard Dugugnon’s new concerto, especially commissioned by Stott. French conductor Fabien Gabel ends with two favourite orchestral showpieces: Háry János’s comic fantasy of defeating Napoléon and stealing his wife’s heart is contrasted by the ice and fire of Prokofiev’s dramatisation of the real Napoléonic wars.
