The last concert of the season offers nothing less than a French evening with our piano virtuoso Leif Ove Andsnes and a summery TSO.

In Debussy’s Fantaisie pour piano et orchestre, the piano soloist is well integrated into the orchestra’s texture, but the solo voice is both virtuoso, elegant and alluringly energetic. Andsnes has received rave reviews for his interpretation of this work worldwide.

Franck’s Variations symphoniques are considered his most brilliant work, requiring both dexterity and finesse. It is like a mini-version of a piano concerto, but here the soloist and orchestra are equal, and together they imaginatively develop the stream of musical ideas that is springing up.

The evening is framed by two orchestral works; excerpts from Mendelssohn’s enchantingly beautiful A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Wagner’s powerful and popular overture to the opera Tannhäuser.
