The astonishing feat of Stravinsky's Firebird Suite performed from memory, introduced by broadcaster Tom Service, alongside Ravel's sublime Piano Concerto.

Aurora Orchestra
Alexandre Tharaud
Nicholas Collon conductor
Tom Service

The fairytales and folk melodies of Stravinsky’s magical Firebird Suite are deconstructed with a living programme note presented by Tom Service – and then reassembled as the orchestra performs the whole electrifying work from memory, with thrilling virtuosity and heightened communication.

Outi Tarkiainen’s earth-shattering The Ring of Fire and Love takes its dramatic inspiration from natural phenomena: a solar eclipse, a volcanic belt, and the birth of a baby.

In joyful celebration, pianist Alexandre Tharaud joins the orchestra for Ravel’s Piano Concerto, a melting pot of jazz, classical and folk influences.

Outi Tarkiainen:
The Ring of Fire and Love (9')
Piano Concerto in G (24')
Suite from The Firebird (30')
