Conductor Alondra de la Parra
Piano Sergio Tiempo 2018 Artist-in-Residence
Stravinsky Concerto in E flat (Dumbarton Oaks)
Rachmaninov Concerto No.1 in F sharp minor for Piano and Orchestra, Op.1
Bartók Concerto for Orchestra
It’s not just Alondra de la Parra and Sergio Tiempo who star in this concert – you can glimpse all of the orchestral players as soloists in these winning works. Stravinsky’s Dumbarton Oaks kicks off proceedings and recalls Bach’s Brandenburg Concertos in its bustling themes, but its shifting metres, syncopation and severe tonality is unmistakably Stravinsky! Written in 1891, the teenage Rachmaninov’s first piano concerto then electrifies with its incredible piano work and opulent harmonies. Finally, Bartók’s Concerto for Orchestra spotlights orchestral sections, duos and individuals in a pacy finish. Bravo!
