Take a trip around Europe with the BSO and our new Leverhulme Young Conductor in Association Marta Gardolińska in a concert featuring a dazzling selection of masterworks by five truly great composers. Commissioned to write a ballet, Ravel incorporated the "bolero" dance into his score which depicts a young sensual gypsy woman launching into a slow, languid dance. Entranced by her movements the other café dancers join in, one by one, until everyone is dancing, with the pace slowly quickening into a dramatic climax. It has the power to mesmerise the senses and quicken the pulse more effectively than any other piece of music.

It is an adagio - central to Mozart’s immaculate Clarinet Concerto – which shows his genius. Listening to it, two things are immediately apparent; the seeming simplicity of the major themes and the seamless interaction between soloist and orchestra. The master of orchestration, Rimsky-Korsakov doesn’t disappoint with his energetic showpiece in which his musical magician’s wand busily showers spells of sparkling sound. Another enchanted world of adventure is brought to life by Grieg and his musical tales including In the Hall of the Mountain King, whilst Bizet’s genius for colour and melody is deftly worked into a charming suite depicting life in Provence.
