Our next concert

Saturday 3rd June 2017
The Queen's Hall, Edinburgh, 7.45 pm

Lyell Cresswell The Rev. Norman McLeod's Dance
Mozart Piano Concerto No 23 in A K488 (PE)
Poulenc Piano Concerto (JW)
Ravel Suite: Ma mère l'Oye (Mother Goose)

Conductor/Piano Peter Evans
Piano Jack Westwell

The piano plays a prominent part in the season-ending MCO concert: Peter Evans plays and directs one of Mozart's best-loved piano concertos, the magical and lyrical A major K488, and gifted young pianist Jack Westwell, winner of the 2015 Edinburgh Concerto Competition, performs Poulenc's tuneful, energetic, and somewhat neglected piano concerto. The concert opens with Lyell Cresswell's characterful The Rev Norman McLeod's Dance [from his much larger-scale work Shadows without Sun] and ends with Ravel's gorgeous and timeless depiction of childhood, the Mother Goose Suite.
