John Storgårds conducts the London Philharmonic Orchestra

Katia & Marielle Labèque and the London Philharmonic Orchestra perform the world premiere of Bryce Dessner’s Concerto for Two Pianos, in a concert also featuring Stravinsky and Rachmaninov.

New worlds: exiled from Russia, Rachmaninov and Stravinsky travelled Europe and America before ending up as unlikely neighbours in Hollywood.

The chrome-plated dazzle of Rachmaninov’s gorgeous Third Symphony can’t hide its deep, songful sense of loss; and Stravinsky’s Jeu de cartes is playing for higher (and scarier) stakes than you might at first realise from this brilliant, razor-sharp music.

In between, guest conductor John Storgårds teams up with the world-famous Labèque sisters in something wholly new and surprising: a double piano concerto, written specially for the Labèques by Bryce Dessner, Golden Globe-nominated composer of the score for The Revenant.
