Bizet’s incidental music to L’Arlesienne was not successful at the time but has become one of his most popular works. Ravel’s concerto shows the composer responding to the constraints of using only one hand on the piano with imaginative orchestral colouring and rhythmic subtlety. After a short but striking piece from one of Iceland’s foremost composers, the concert ends with an extended selection from Prokofiev’s vividly characterised music for Romeo and Juliet.

Pre-concert talk, 6.30pm | The Forge
