About this event

Borodin’s overture to Prince Igor opens a programme celebrating the 70th birthday of composer Edward Cowie and the close musical relationship between the BBC Philharmonic, conductor Gianandrea Noseda and pianist Jean-Efflam Bavouzet.

Bavouzet plays Prokofiev’s brilliant Second Piano Concerto, its orchestral score destroyed in the Russian Revolution and revised by the composer in Paris in 1923. The fragile beauty of the Great Barrier Reef is the subject of Cowie’s Earth Music I, while the ‘Little Russian’ continues the season’s Tchaikovsky symphony cycle.
