Jonathan Nott conducts the BBC Symphony Orchestra and pianist Pierre-Laurent Aimard in music by Mozart, Ligeti and Benjamin.
BBC PROMS 2010
Live from the Royal Albert Hall, London
Presented by Penny Gore
The BBC Symphony Orchestra and Jonathan Nott present a typically wide-ranging programme placing contemporary works alongside classics of the repertoire and ending with three glittering showpieces by Ravel.
Pierre Laurent Aimard plays an adventurous solo piece by Ligeti and concertos by Mozart and George Benjamin - the latter an exploration of the contrasting and complementary sounds that the piano and orchestra can make.
Mozart: Piano Concerto No 27 in B flat, K595
Ligeti: Musica ricercata - No 2: Mesto, rigido e ceremoniale
George Benjamin: Duet (London premiere)
Pierre-Laurent Aimard, piano

Jonathan Nott, conductor
