Dukas - The Sorcerer’s Apprentice
Haydn - Organ Concerto in C major Hob XVIII:1
Rimsky-Korsakov - Sheherazade
Rossen Milanov - Conductor
Olivier Latry - Organ
A battalion of determined buckets and brooms usually comes to mind whenever Paul Dukas’s The Sorcerer’s Apprentice is heard. This dazzling score, overflowing with shimmering, spellbinding melodies is enchanting, mischievous and brilliantly witty. Poulenc’s Organ Concerto is equally wondrous. Performed by the extraordinary Olivier Latry, organist for the Cathedral of Notre-Dame and declared “an organ God” by The Guardian, his performance will undoubtedly be an electrifying moment in the musical calendar.
Rimsky-Korsakov’s incandescent Scheherazade completes this fantastical concert. This sumptuous score is ablaze with vibrant colour and breathtakingly virtuosic solo passages, as Rimsky-Korsakov recreates the tales of Princess Scheherazade’s 1001 Arabian Nights.
