Esa-Pekka Salonen conductor
The Franco-Russian connection in the early 1900s, epitomised by Diaghilev’s Ballets Russes, produced orchestral music of unmatched luxuriant colour. The ballet music Stravinsky composed for Diaghilev, inspired by an exotic Russian legend, is paired with Ravel’s lush song cycle and the dark colours of his Piano Concerto for the Left Hand.
