Valentine In Paris

When: 14th February 2020 @ 7:30pm

Where: The Southbank Centre

Price: £35.00

French is the language of love and here is a concert with music by Ravel and Saint-Saëns.

After a brief stop in Humperdinck’s enchanted German forest, and the brief fairytale vision of Ravel’s beautiful Pavane, we’re straight into a Paris café: here Ravel’s Piano Concerto fills the air with the sounds of the Jazz Age.

No-one in the world plays it with more panache than the great French pianist Jean-Efflam Bavouzet.

And then maestro Emmanuel Krivine and the full London Philharmonic Orchestra ignite the fireworks, as Saint-Saëns’ spectacular Organ Symphony lights up the night sky. All without leaving the South Bank…
