Concert with Nelsons & Thibaudet - 16 November 2011

Andris Nelsons, conductor; Jean-Yves Thibaudet, piano; Tchaikovsky - Fantasie-ouverture 'Romeo and Julia'; Saint-Saëns - Piano Concerto No. 5; Stravinsky - Petrouchka (1947 version); Andris Nelsons is accompanying the orchestra for a second time on tour, and his travelling companion is once again a great pianist: Jean-Yves Thibaudet. The highly imaginative programme they are presenting together transports the listener from Verona to Egypt and concludes with a Russian fair. Saint-Saëns's Piano Concerto No. 5 is a rather uncommon work, which the composer wrote to mark the fiftieth anniversary of his debut as a pianist. With his legendary jeu perle, Saint-Saëns conjures up not only the Nile but also impressions from Sri Lanka, Brazil and Japan in the Andante.
