Ravel: Mother Goose, Suite
Stravinsky: Symphony in Three Movements
Elim Chan, conductor/ Mahan Esfahani, harpsichord

Everything old is new again! Stravinsky’s Pulcinella takes 18th-century music, sprinkles it with humour and drops it headfirst into the Roaring Twenties. Elena Kats- Chernin (remember the Lloyds TSB advert?) takes tales from the Silk Road, and creates a typically quirky showpiece for our new Artist in Residence Mahan Esfahani. Maurice Ravel, meanwhile, looks back on childhood in his ravishing Mother Goose. Guest conductor Elim Chan’s concerts are nothing if not entertaining – and she finishes this one with more Stravinsky: the high-kicking, high-voltage Symphony in Three Movements, written in 1940s Hollywood. Pure showbiz.
