We're excited to be welcoming back guest conductor Leo Geyer for our summer concert in June featuring Harpist Olivia Jageurs. Here Leo shares a little more about the programme for this concert which we know will be a wonderful evening - "This programme is an exploration of orchestral colour, showcasing the 20th century masters of orchestration. Opening with two neo-classical dances originally written for piano, and beautifully orchestrated in both cases by Ravel. Continuing with the dance theme, Debussy’s harp concerto will be performed by the award-winning young virtuoso Olivia Jageurs www.olivia-harpist.com . The first half will conclude with Ravel’s explosive La Valse which many argue sets out to destroy the Viennese Waltz. Rimsky-Korsakov’s symphonic poem Scheherazade comprises the second half of the concert and tells the middle-Eastern folk tale One Thousand and One Nights. This love story is told through transformations of leitmotifs and dazzling orchestral colour."
