Esa-Pekka Salonen conductor
Pierre-Laurent Aimard piano
Story-telling, legends and make-believe lie at the heart of the fairytale world of Ravel's exquisite musical nursery tales and in the colourful barbaric splendour of Stravinsky's Firebird. One of the world's leading conductors and the Philharmonia's principal conductor, Esa-Pekka Salonen, is unmatched in the glittering orchestral virtuosity of these works. One of today's wizards of the piano, Pierre-Laurent Aimard, joins him in Ravel's sparkling Piano Concerto with its Mozartian slow movement.
