Information about the programme

Working with young musicians is a top priority for Simon Rattle. After the performance with the BRSO Academy in December, he will now conduct the concert with the BLJO, which the BRSO has sponsored for twenty years. A highlight for Simon Rattle will be the collaboration with pianist Tsotne Zedginidze, who was born in 2009. Rattle saw Zedginidze perform a solo recital at the age of twelve that featured works by Debussy, Bartók, and Schoenberg, and was overwhelmed by his musical insight and maturity. “Tsotne played Schoenberg with the same love and care he showed towards Schubert, it’s just that there were a few more notes.” It is hardly surprising that Zedginidze was already very familiar with Schoenberg’s Piano Concerto from 1942. Now he has the opportunity to play this fascinating modern masterpiece in public – with other young talented musicians and a world-class conductor.
