Composer, conductor, violinist without equal: to those who knew him, George Enescu was the kind of artist who made the whole world seem to burn brighter. Inspired by Bach, by Stravinsky, by Parisian elegance and the wild melodies of his native Romania, Enescu’s music is like no-one else’s – and it’s a special passion for Vladimir Jurowski. Tonight he conducts two extraordinary miniature masterpieces, both too rarely heard in the West. First, though, enjoy the Bach suite whose blazing majesty inspired Enescu, and the brand new Third Piano Concerto by Elena Kats-Chernin, whose music is proof that living composers really can write tunes.
