Youthful irreverence, splashes of colour and a playful sense of humour. Schubert and Weber might seem unlikely inspirations for Igor Stravinsky, but in the bold, streamlined world of the 1920s and 30s they turned out to be brothers under the skin. Andrés Orozco-Estrada opens this concert with Stravinsky's most elegant ballet, and closes it with the playful wit of Franz Schubert's Third Symphony. In between, Peter Donohoe unleashes all his power and panache in Stravinsky's uproarious Capriccio, and pairs it with its original inspiration: a showstopping Konzertstück by the composer whom Stravinsky called a 'prince of music'.
