Weilerstein and the BBC Symphony Orchestra at the Barbican – 21st April 2016



An exciting  blend of Ravel’s  G major concerto and Bernstein’s dances from West Side Story, spliced with two high powered new American works.

Gifted young conductor Joshua Weilerstein brings us Christopher Rouse’s Rapture, a journey towards ‘an ever more blinding ecstasy’ in the composer’s words, and Quilting, by Bryce Dessner, founder member of rock band The National. Relish an opportunity to experience the inspired artistry of pianist Francesco Piemontesi in Ravel’s spellbinding concerto.
