Yutaka Sado conductor
Nobuyuki Tsujii piano
Life, liberty and big, big tunes! Maybe itís the raw energy, maybe itís those swinging rhythms, maybe itís the sense of ordinary folk doing extraordinary things, but thereís just something about American music and whether weíre hearing the plain-speaking pioneers of Aaron Coplandís Appalachia, or the high-kicking hustlers of Leonard Bernsteinís New York, itís unmistakable.
Tis The Gift To Be Simple, Somewhere, Mambo!Öyou already know how they go. So join the BBC Philharmonic and conductor Yutaka Sado, and come share the American dream. As for Chopinís dreamy First Piano Concerto, if you heard Nobuyuki Tsujiiís remarkable performances with us last season, youíll already have experienced the almost magical way he communicates with an audience. Expect eloquence, expect fireworks, and expect some truly extraordinary chemistry as he tackles the most romantic concerto by the supreme keyboard poet.
A Journey Through Music event.
