Milhaud: Le boeuf sur le toit
Ravel: Piano Concerto in G
Prokofiev: Symphony No.5
Steven Osborne (piano)
Ludovic Morlot (conductor)
The BBC Philharmonic is joined by Associate Artist Ludovic Morlot for a French first half. Jean Cocteau's Surrealist theatrical spectacle from early 1920s Paris, choreographed to Milhaud's colourful score introduced the Parisian audience to vivid characters. It was so popular a bar was named after it. The music fizzes with South American dances and catchy tunes. The end of the same decade saw Ravel inspired by jazz; the BBC Philharmonic is joined by Steven Osborne for Ravel's luscious and characterful G major Piano Concerto. Prokofiev's Fifth Symphony sees a move to the East for a "symphony of the grandeur of the human spirit" - Prokofiev's own phrase used in a broadcast on Radio Moscow around the time of its premiere. Gripping from first note right through to the breathtaking Finale, Prokofiev was at his happiest when he penned it.
