CONTEXT: 19:00: introduction & encounter with Fazil Say.

Last season the Turkish pianist-composer Fazıl Say was a guest performer with the National Orchestra for the first time and now we are continuing the successful collaboration with a concert that wends its way through three countries. Say plays solo in his own Third piano concerto that he himself performed in world première with the National Orchestra of Radio France. The fact that he has a clear predilection for jazz is apparent from his choice of Ravel’s Piano Concerto in G major. Ravel wrote it after a journey through North America in which he was in concert with blues and jazz, American genres par excellence. We conclude with the orchestral suite Scheherazade by Rimski-Korsakov, probably the most well-known of all the musical adaptations of Arabian nights.
