Gershwin’s sizzling Rhapsody in Blue, which expertly combines elements of classical and jazz music, is the centrepiece of this concert and sees conductor Stefan Hofkes performing the solo piano part (alongside the virtuoso soloist You-Chiung Lin), directing from the keyboard, in this version for four hands on one piano. The colours of the symphony orchestra are vividly brought to life in Britten’s Young Person’s Guide, brilliantly written around a theme by Henry Purcell. This family-friendly concert also features a wide variety of other music – including familiar themes from the silver screen.
