Classic Radio you are taking part in the Halle aux Grains in Toulouse for this concert by the Orchester national du Capitole conducted by Finnish conductor Dima Slobodeniouk. First work on the program, the Piano Concerto No. 3 by Rachmaninoff. Created in 1909 in New York, it requires virtuosity and technique from the part of the soloist, in this case the young Russian pianist Lukas Geniusas, who distinguished himself at the age of 20 by winning the 2nd Prize of the Frédéric Chopin 2010.
In the second part, you can hear the ballet Fire Bird by Stravinsky. Its creation on June 25, 1910 in Paris was crowned with success. A success which launched the career of Stravinsky, then 28 years old, and which paved the way for two other ballets also created in Paris: Petrushka and The Rite of Spring. This concert recorded on December 15 will be presented by Laure Mézan.
