An intoxicating blend of Ravel's sensuous G major concerto and Bernstein's roof-raising dances from West Side Story, spliced with high-octane new American works. Gifted young conductor Joshua Weilerstein brings us Christopher Rouse's Rapture, a journey towards 'an ever more blinding ecstasy' in the composer's words, and quilting by Bryce Dessner, founder-member of rock band The National. Relish an opportunity to experience the immaculate artistry of former BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist Francesco Piemontesi in Ravel's spellbinding Piano Concerto.
