BBC National Orchestra of Wales
April 21, 2015
Jessica Cottis conducting a ground-breaking programme of French music by female composers for International Women's Day, working with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, BBC National Chorus of Wales, Lunar Sax Quartet and pianists Noriko Ogawa and Pascal and Ami Rogé. Recorded live for BBC Radio 3 In Concert.
Pascal wrote a blog about one of the pieces: Tailleferre's Concerto Grosso for two pianos, saxophone quartet, chorus and orchestra... aptly dubbed by BBC staff as 'the concerto of many'. It's an extraordinary piece (the opening Allegro was described by critic Gabriel Marcel as 'a solar explosion of joy'), written in 1934 and never before performed in public! Read more about it here:
