Ravel waltzes on the edge of the abyss. Saint-Saens summons the spirit of a great master. And in Nazi-occupied Poland, Witold Lutoslawski creates dazzling, defiant beauty to inspire the resistance. When two great pianists play together, there’s no limits to the stories they can tell: the RWCMD’s own Roger Owens and Catherine Milledge launch The Grand Weekend in the grandest possible style.
Lutoslawski Variations on a theme by Paganini
Debussy En blanc et noir
Saint-Saens Variations on a theme by Beethoven
Ravel La Valse
The Grand Weekend is supported by The Mosawi Foundation.
