Chamber musician, concerto soloist, and orchestra director, Lawrence Power is joined by his regular duo partner Simon Crawford-Philips. Tonight they showcase de Falla’s famous collection of Spanish folksongs and Turnage’s work written specially for them. The concert begins and ends with music with Shakespearean associations. Berlioz’s work was inspired by the composer’s love of Hamlet, whilst the drama of Prokofiev’s vivid and exuberant ballet masterpiece reflects the playwright’s tale of struggle, betrayal and love.
