DEBUT WITH BBCSO MARKS UK PREMIERE OF GRIBBIN WORK
4th March 2013
On Friday March 15th Finghin will make his début with the BBC Symphony Orchestra in a performance that will mark the UK premiere of Irish composer Deirdre Gribbin's piano concerto "The Binding of the Years". This work was commissioned by the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra and the world premiere was given by Finghin with that orchestra in May 2012. Now the piece, which is inspired by the Aztec Ritual Fire Ceremony, will be brought to a much larger audience, as the UK premiere will be broadcast on BBC Radio 3.
The performance will be conducted by Alan Buribayev, principal conductor of the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra, who also conducted the premiere in Dublin and who also makes his début with the BBCSO at this time. The programme also includes works by Prokofiev and Zhubanov.
Tickets are free and can be booked here.
