THE NOBLE, THE SENTIMENTAL AND THE EXOTIC
ABOUT THE PROGRAMME

SUAVE FRENCH HARPIST XAVIER DE MAISTRE TAKES CENTRE STAGE for Argentinian Alberto Ginastera's exotic and exciting Harp Concerto, which puts his country's native folk melodies and rhythms to magnificently colourful use. No less rich and dynamic is Mussorgsky's masterful Pictures at an Exhibition, which brings 10 paintings by the Russian painter Viktor Hartmann to enthralling and vivacious life. Ravel's deliciously tongue-in-cheek set of Schubert-inspired waltzes will keep you guessing to the end about which of them is 'noble' and which 'sentimental'.

Soundings, 7pm: In Conversation
