BBC Symphony Orchestra Live from Maida Vale Studios
A live concert from the BBC's Maida Vale studios. Ravel: Concerto in G. Ravel: 5 melodies populaires grecques. Duparc: Songs with orchestra. Messiaen: Eclairs sur l'au-dela.
Jean Deroyer conducts the BBC Symphony Orchestra, pianist Louis Schwizgebel and tenor Robin Tritschler in a short afternoon concert, broadcast live from Maida Vale in today's Afternoon on 3.
Hear the jazz-inflected harmonies of Ravel's Piano Concerto in G Major, while his Cinq mélodies populaires grecques set popular Greek songs from the island of Chios, mixing the flippant Tout gai! with the more profound Là-bas, vers l'église. The live concert concludes with the UK premiere of Argentinian-born composer Fabián Panisello's Cuadernos for orchestra. We'll also hear a performance of Messiaen's final completed work, Eclairs sur l'au-delà, recorded at the Barbican on Wednesday.
Introduced by Penny Gore from the Radio 3 pop-up studio at London's Southbank Centre. If you're in the area, visit the Radio 3 studio and performance space in the Royal Festival Hall Riverside Café to listen to Radio 3, ask questions and enjoy the special events.
