Haydn Concerto for piano Hob. XVIII:3 (cadence by Jean-Efflam Bavouzet)
Benjamin At First Light
Haydn Symphony No. 82 Hob. I:82 « The bear »
To hell with the Brexit, the United Kingdom has not finished celebrating itself in Paris... Because the most Parisian of Scottish conductors to have led the Orchestre de chambre de Paris, Douglas Boyd, returns to make an expected and postponed bow. With, of course, his favourite composer, Haydn, and one of his most famous "Parisian" symphonies, nicknamed "The Bear" because of its dancing rondo-like finale. As for Haydn's Piano Concerto No. 3, it will benefit from the lights of a distinguished pianist: Jean-Efflam Bavouzet, who will perform his own cadenza here. To this tableau bathed in Turner's lights will be added the very solemn Elgar and the very modern George Benjamin. Proof if any were needed that music has always carried with it the most cordial understanding, from one side of the Channel to the other.
