WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Part of the BBC Proms.

Leading champion of Lutoslawski's music and Music Director of English National Opera, Edward Gardner conducts the BBC Symphony Orchestra in a programme contrasting one each of the Polish composer's earliest and latest works with music by the British composer Gustav Holst. Completed shortly before the occupation of Poland, Lutoslawski's Symphonic Variations is juxtaposed with Holst's rarely heard tribute to Thomas Hardy, Egdon Heath. Louis Lortie is the soloist in Lutoslawski's monumental 1988 Piano Concerto in a concert that closes with Holst's extraordinarily visionary The Planets. Finish time: approx. 21:55
