Eugene Gigout Grand Choeur Dialogue for organ (solo organ)
Poulenc Organ Concerto
Lutosławski Little Suite
Shostakovich Symphony No.9
Marta Gardolińska conductor
Ian Tracey organ
At the end of World War II, the Soviet authorities expected composers to write bombastic victory symphonies. What they didn’t expect was Shostakovich’s Ninth: 30 minutes of melody, irreverence and pitch-black satire. Still, with the dynamic young Polish conductor Marta Gardolińska on the podium, nothing is predictable. A haunting nocturne from neglected French genius Lili Boulanger? A flurry of (very Polish) fireworks from Witold Lutosławski? Or Ian Tracey, putting the newly refurbished Liverpool Philharmonic Hall organ through its paces in Poulenc’s glittering concerto for organ, strings and timpani? Warning: it gets loud.
This performance features the newly refurbished Rushworth and Dreaper Organ.
This concert will be followed by a live post-concert Zoom Q&A session with musicians, conductors and staff in a sort of ‘post-match analysis’, where you can ask questions and participate
