Chopin Piano Concerto No1
Lutosławski Concerto for Orchestra
Elim Chan Conductor
Benjamin Grosvenor Piano
‘Cannons hidden in flowers’ was how one writer described the music of Chopin, and throughout the long and stormy history of Polish music, dazzling colours and heartfelt romance have gone hand in hand with fiery national pride. Expect poetry and panache as Benjamin Grosvenor reunites with Elim Chan and the RSNO following their recent Gramophone Award-winning recording of Chopin’s beautiful Piano Concerto No1, while Chan also lights up the sky with luminous Polish classics from Lutosławski and the Oscar-winning modern master Wojciech Kilar.
