Tonight we’re going to fire off as many of your synapses as possible. First comes Mozart’s Sonata for Two Pianos, a piece studied by scientists to investigate how classical music increases brain activity, an extraordinary piece by Schumann and climaxing with Saint-Saëns’ Carnival of the Animals – one of the most musically descriptive and visual pieces you will ever hear. Prepare to feel alive. Produced in collaboration with The Keyboard Trust.
