Jurowski conducts Ravel and Anderson

A classic Greek love story and a world premiere

7:30 PM, ​ Royal Festival Hall, London

Julian Anderson In lieblicher Bläue for violin and orchestra* (world premiere)
Ravel Daphnis et Chloé (complete ballet)**

Vladimir Jurowski conductor
Carolin Widmann violin
London Philharmonic Choir
London Philharmonic Orchestra

* Commissioned by the London Philharmonic Orchestra, Deutsches Symphonie Orchester Berlin and Seattle Symphony Orchestra. The London Philharmonic Orchestra gratefully acknowledges financial support from PRS for Music Foundation and the Boltini Trust.

** Supported by Palazzetto Bru Zane – Centre de musique romantique française.

For his 1912 ballet depicting the pure, enduring love of the hero and heroine Daphnis and Chloé, Michel Fokine knew who to ask for music of the utmost atmosphere and clarity: Maurice Ravel. Fokine knew that Ravel’s highly reactive imagination would respond to the passion, colour and foreign exoticism of the Greek-based story, and he was right. Ravel delivered his most magnificent score, an orchestral tapestry full of unforgettable moments – not least the heat-soaked Greek sunrise. Vladimir Jurowski conducts this rare performance of the complete ballet score, after the world premiere of a new violin concerto by Julian Anderson.
