The Great Escape

Debussy Iberia from Images

Saint-Saëns Piano Concerto No. 5 (Egyptian)

Ravel Mother Goose Suite

Debussy La mer

Edward Gardner conductor

Stephen Hough piano

There’s nothing quite like Debussy’s La mer, a musical evocation of the sea so vast and vivid you can almost feel the spray on your face and the wind in your hair. It’s just one part of a concert that promises to transport you far away, to Spain in Debussy’s Iberia, and up the Nile via the breathtaking virtuosity of Saint-Saëns’ ‘Egyptian’ Piano Concerto No. 5.
