Sir Jack Lyons Concert Hall

Archie Bonham piano

John Stringer conductor

Kaija Saariaho      Ciel d’Hiver
Debussy      Nocturnes
Rachmaninov      Vocalise
Rachmaninov      Piano Concerto no. 2 op. 18

Saariaho’s short work evokes a winter sky and evocatively connects to ‘Nuages’, the first of Debussy’s Nocturnes which was inspired by paintings by Whistler. These three movements shimmer with the sounds of distant processions and the movement of seascapes with distant, haunting, voices. Third-year student Archie Bonham is soloist in the rightly popular Rachmaninov concerto
