Alexander Shelley Conductor
Jayson Gillham Piano

Alexander Shelley welcomes the young and vibrant Jayson Gillham to join him on the main stage for Chopin’s youthful Second Piano Concerto. This is sandwiched by two magical gems: Dukas’ symphonic poem The Sorcerer's Apprentice and Ravel’s iconic arrangement of Mussorgsky’s triumphant Pictures at an Exhibition, bringing the concert to a jaw-dropping close.
