The play’s the thing. Nothing that Brett Dean does is ever predictable, and as the LPO launches its new partnership with this most compelling of living composers, we present the UK premiere of The Players. The scene is Elsinore, setting of Dean’s multi-award-winning 2017 opera Hamlet, and a troupe of actors is about to perform. Tonight, though, there’s only one star: the phenomenal accordionist James Crabb. It just gets more entertaining from there, in a concert that begins with the ceremonial sunburst of Bach’s ‘Brandenburg’ Concerto No. 5, and follows up with a complete performance of Stravinsky’s irreverent mock-Baroque extravaganza Pulcinella. Pure theatre.
