BBC NOW - Roussel, Poulenc, Mussorgsky

Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition, and Pascal Rogé playing Poulenc's Piano Concerto, with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, conducted by Roberto Minczuk.

From Brangwyn Hall, Swansea

Roussel: Bacchus et Ariane Suite No 2

Poulenc: Piano Concerto

Mussorgsky (orch. Ravel): Pictures at an Exhibition

BBC National Orchestra of Wales
Pascal Rogé, piano
Roberto Minczuk, conductor

Mussorgsky's gallery of people, stories and places takes the listener on a journey of pure fantasy and Ravel later transformed this great piano work into an orchestral showpiece full of glittering colours. In this concert, it is placed next to the heart-on-sleeve romanticism of Poulenc's Piano Concerto and the elemental dance rhythms of Roussel's Bacchus et Ariane Suite.
