François-Xavier Roth returns to conduct the second set of concerts in his series After Romanticism, an exploration of this significant period in music history. He focuses on the music of Debussy and Bartók, two composers who radicalized the musical language of their predecessors to produce a brilliant and inventive style of their own.
Debussy’s Jeux was written for the Ballets Russes and the music itself overflows with rhythmic inventiveness. Bartók’s Piano Concerto No 3 was his last work, a virtuosic tour-de-force. Simon Trpčeski’s energetic performances have dazzled audiences the world over,the concert concludes with Mahler’s First Symphony.
