Playing here under their artistic director, the renowned Jacek Kaspszyk, who needs no introduction to Yorkshire audiences from his many successful concerts, the Orchestra offers a rich programme, the centre-piece of which is the mighty Fifth Symphony of Gustav Mahler. This contains the haunting Adagietto, which was used to great effect in Luchino Visconti's masterpiece, the film Death in Venice.
Set beside this is Beethoven's beautiful Fourth Piano Concerto, in which the soloist will be Russian-born Mikhail Rudy. Now resident in France, he is recognised internationally as one of the finest pianists of his generation. The programme is completed by Leonard Bernstein's infectiously cheerful Overture to his musical Candide, and a short, atmospheric piece by the major Polish composer, Krzyszt of Penderecki, also used in a famous film, Stanley Kubrick's The Shining.
