Mark Bebbington performs Chopin

Friday 13 April 2018, 7.30pm

SMETANA Bartered Bride Overture

CHOPIN Piano Concerto No.2

SIBELIUS Symphony No.2

Alan Buribayev Conductor
Mark Bebbington Piano

Royal Philharmonic Orchestra

Bringing a distinctly Romantic feel to the evening is Smetana’s exhilarating Overture to his first and most enduring comic opera The Bartered Bride followed by Mark Bebbington performing Chopin’s Piano Concerto No.2. Technically taxing and richly melodic, Chopin’s masterpiece blends rippling virtuosity, Polish dance rhythms and lyricism.

One of Sibelius’ most engaging and beautiful compositions, his Symphony No.2 evokes the expansive, glacial landscape of his native Finland. From an anguished slow movement to a finale of furious passion, this piece climaxes in a flourish of exhilarating heroism.
