Symphonic Cinema: Stravinsky | Ravel at The Bridgewater Hall

Will Fulford-Jones
BBC Philharmonic

Symphonic Cinema - Stravinsky/Ravel at The Bridgewater Hall, City Centre, 19 January 2019, from £12.5 - Book now

A first for the BBC Philharmonic and The Bridgewater Hall, this unusual concert under the banner of Symphonic Cinema pairs sound with vision in a way rarely heard or seen in the classical concert hall.

The programme brings together two works of rare brilliance that each premiered just before the outbreak of the First World War: Ravel’s two orchestral suites adapted from his enchanting ballet Daphnis and Chloe, followed by Igor Stravinsky’s thrilling Firebird. Heard in isolation, the music alone would be an attractive proposition – but there’ll also be specially created dramatic films playing simultaneously above the orchestra, edited live by director and ‘image soloist’ Lucas van Woerkum to ensure perfect harmony between the sounds of the orchestra (conducted by Ben Gernon) and the pictures on the big screen. A fascinating prospect.
