Elgar, Tchaikovsky and Walton

Kirill Karabits conducts the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra in Elgar and Walton and Simon Trpčeski plays Tchaikovsky's First Piano Concerto.

Another chance to hear Kirill Karabits conduct the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra in Elgar and Walton and Simon Trpčeski 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 Trpčeski, one of the most exciting pianists of our time, delights the audience in Poole with Tchaikovsky's barn storming concerto, and he'll discover plenty of poetry along the way.

Presented by Martin Handley from the Lighthouse, Poole.
