Three Faces of Modernity

Three faces of modernity are contemplated in this program, which presents itself as an ode to orchestral timbres: Ravel's distanced homage to the waltz, Gershwin's irresistible swing, and Bartók's reinvented folklorism.
Originally conceived as ballet music in homage to the Viennese style of Johann Strauss, »La Valse« by Ravel is an extraordinary sensory experience, bursting all boundaries to become a fantastic musical whirlwind, almost demonic in its paroxysmal frenzy.

In contrast, Bartók's sumptuous Concerto for Orchestra, with its subtle symmetries, presents the classicism of a relaxed and peacefully hedonistic modernism. Irresistible, at times imbued with Slavic colours but all animated by the spirit of the Charleston and the blues, Gershwin's famous Concerto in F, which also enchanted Ravel, closes this sumptuous orchestral triptych – the solo part will be played by Kirill Gerstein. The pianist combines Russian, American and Central European styles of interpretation with an insatiable curiosity. »This is the kind of serious, intelligent and virtuosic music-making that keeps classical music alive.« (The Observer)
