Mahler Symphony No 1 in D
Britten Diversions for Piano Left hand and Orchestra
Khachaturian Adagio from ‘Spartacus and Phrygia’

To celebrate the centenary of Benjamin Britten’s birth, Nicholas McCarthy, who played at the closing ceremony of the Paralympic Games 2012, performs “Diversions” for piano left hand and orchestra, ingeniously written and in the form of a theme and eleven variations. The concert opens with the Adagio from the ballet “Spartacus”, instantly recognisable as the warmly romantic opening music from the TV series “The Onedin Line”. Mahler’s first symphony, a youthful work replete with echoes of a bygone bucolic age, provides a suitably exciting climax to an evening of extraordinary auditory delights.
