For 182 years, Liverpool Philharmonic has brought the world’s greatest artists to Liverpool, and now we welcome back Jean-Efflam Bavouzet, the French star who is one of the most engaging performers of his generation. Domingo’s put together a ravishing all-French programme to welcome our guest: expect pure sonic seduction with the beautiful and ethereal sounds of Messiaen’s “forgotten offerings” followed by the lively and energetic Ravel concerto. The pastel colours and rhythmic games of Debussy’s Jeux provide a prelude to Roussel’s dazzling ballet suite Bacchus et Ariadne.
