Isata Kanneh-Mason, piano with musicians

Friday 7 January 2022

When Isata Kanneh-Mason made her debut recording with the Orchestra, one critic wrote that it was like “music-making between friends”.

 

Expect the same chemistry as she joins a team of Orchestra players in a concert packed with fantasy and fun.

There are French fancies from Françaix and Ravel, and high drama as Kanneh-Mason plays Rachmaninov’s tempestuous Études-Tableaux. To end, the magnificent Piano Quintet by Ernő Dohnányi – a contemporary of Mahler who’s difficult to pronounce, but easy to enjoy.

Ravel Introduction and Allegro for flute, clarinet, harp and string quartet
Rachmaninov Études-Tableaux (solo piano)
Françaix Quintet for flute, harp, and string trio
Dohnányi Piano Quintet No.1

Isata Kanneh-Mason piano
With musicians from the Orchestra led by Thelma Handy violin
