Live from the Salle Pleyel, the Orchestre de Paris performs a 100% Western Europe programme, from Liszt's Hungary to Tchaikovsky's Russia and Lutosławski's Poland.
By Lutosławski, we will hear the Concerto for orchestra conducted by Andrey Boreyko, a specialist of the 20th-century music. Composed in the 1950s after those which were written by Hindemith (1925), Kodály (1939) and Bartók (1943), this 3-movement concerto "for orchestra" was built after famous Polish folk music themes.
Following this performance is Khatia Buniatishvili's rendition of the Liszt Concerto for piano No. 2. For this young Georgian pianist, who recorded the Sonata in B Minor as well as other solo piano works by the composer, Liszt is "the only one who allows [her] to represent the multiple characters of [her] soul."1
The orchestra then closes the concert with Tchaikovsky's Suite for orchestra No. 3, written between the composer's fourth and fifth symphonies.
