Grieg    Holberg Suite op.40 
Mozart      
Piano Concerto no.12 K414
Shchedrin Carmen Suite after Bizet
   
Gábor Takács-Nagy  conductor
Christian Ihle Hadland  piano

Grieg’s Holberg Suite is a perennial favourite, a suite of five movements based on eighteenth century dance forms, awash with charming melodies. We are joined by Christian Ihle Hadland, one of Norway’s most exciting young pianists, for the final Mozart concerto of the season, no.12, an early work performed here with just string orchestra. Rodion Shchedrin’s memorable work for strings and five percussionists is a reworking of Bizet’s Carmen – think all Bizet’s tunes dressed in differently coloured clothes – dramatic, entertaining and incredibly witty.
