Dear All

Personal connections and striking musical paintings mark an evocative programme conducted by Esa-Pekka Salonen.

Ibéria sees Debussy at his most Impressionist, hinting with richly expressive colours at the intoxicating atmosphere of hot nights in Andalusia.

His luxurious orchestral palette caught the imagination of a young Ravel, who builds a world of mystery and desire in Shéhérazade.

Soprano Marianne Crebassa returns to the Philharmonia following her acclaimed performance at the BBC Proms. The Times observed: ‘I’ve rarely heard a singer make a more poised, polished or delectable Proms debut… She seems to have everything.’

Berio’s Folk Songs are an intimate reflection on love, written as ‘a tribute to the extraordinary artistry’ of his then-wife, singer Cathy Berberian.

Respighi’s masterpiece paints four contrasting musical scenes in thrilling detail. Children’s games, gloomy catacombs and the song of a nightingale lead to a musical celebration: a victorious Roman legion return home along the pine-lined road, as the huge orchestra is joined by additional jubilant brass.

At the heart of the programme, Esa, by Berio’s contemporary Franco Donatoni, has a deeply personal significance.
