Ravel sang the blues – and dreamt of the hot-blooded rhythms of his native Basque Country. Respighi took an enchanted musical tour of his adopted home city of Rome, where even the pine trees have a song to sing. And Puccini imagined what it might be like to write a symphony rather than an opera – but couldn’t help breaking out into exactly the sort of tunes you’d expect from the composer of La Bohème.
Vasily Petrenko whisks us southwards – and after creating such a stir on his last visit, pianist Kirill Gerstein should make Ravel’s concerto sparkle and dance like never before.
This concert will finish at approx. 9.15pm.
NEW – Reserve and pre-pay for parking for Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra Concerts
We know that parking has become more difficult around Philharmonic Hall with the closure of the car park on Myrtle Street.
We have been looking for ways to improve the situation and to that end are delighted to announce that we will offer pre-paid parking for selected Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra concerts at Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral. The cathedral offers secure, manned underground parking an easy 5 minute walk from Philharmonic Hall and is open until 11pm on concert nights.
