Stefan Hofkes  conductor  ·  Ashley Wass  piano  Biography

Debussy | Images: Ibéria
Liszt | Piano Concerto No 1
Beethoven | Symphony No 5

Debussy’s ‘Ibéria’ opens this concert and conveys the sights, sounds and scents of Spain: the streets and byways; the fragrance of night; and the morning of festival day!
Ashley Wass is a superb artist whom the orchestra is thrilled to welcome back, this time to perform Liszt’s dazzling and witty ‘Piano Concerto No 1 in E flat’.
For Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony the superlatives could go on forever, but there is perhaps one simple reason why this work has proved to be so enduring: it is a triumph of abstract musical creation that captures and transmits the human spirit.
