Kirill Karabits conducts the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra in Elgar, Tchaikovsky and Walton

Live from the Lighthouse Poole, Kirill Karabits conducts the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra in Elgar and Walton and Simon Trpceski plays Tchaikovsky's First Piano Concertos.

Live from the Lighthouse Poole. Kirill Karabits conducts the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra in Elgar and Walton and Simon Trpceski joins them for the most famous of all Russian piano concertos.
When he arrived as Principal Conductor of the Bournemouth Symphony the Ukrainian, Kirill Karabits, was enthusiastic to conduct music by British composers. And so, after his successes with the music of Benjamin Britten last year, he turns now to William Walton and his sensational symphony of the early 1930s, a work which immediately put him on the international music map. The Macedonian, Simon TrpĨeski, one of the most exciting pianists of our time, is bound to bring the audience in Poole to its feet at the end of Tchaikovsky's barn storming concerto but he'll discover plenty of poetry along the way.
