About This Event
Hannah French presents a concert given in December 2018 by the BBC Concert Orchestra and conductor Richard Farnes at the Watford Colosseum. Former R3 New Generation Artist Thibaut Garcia is the soloist in Rodrigo's famous guitar concerto; a composer who lost his sight at the age of three. Ravel, whose Tombeau de Couperin begins the concert, suffered from aphasia towards the end of his life, triggered or possibly exacerbated by an accident with a taxi.
