Snape Maltings Concert Hall
Part of Aldeburgh Festival
There's a glossy, outdoorsy sheen to the Ravel, Britten and Respighi.
The Australian-American composer-arranger Percy Grainger’s brilliant orchestration of Ravel’s piano piece uses tuned percussion both to evoke the ‘valley of bells’ and to highlight Ravel’s gorgeous Javanese gamelan-inspired textures.
Britten’s dazzlingly virtuosic piano concerto is irresistable in the hands of Steven Osborne, one of the work’s great champions.
Respighi’s programmatic piece feels like a score to an imagined film, while Tom Coult’s new concerto, written for Daniel Pioro and receiving its second performance tonight, is similarly inspired by an outdoor space.
