Ingrid Fliter’s encore –

It’s all about colour. In 1912, Debussy swapped the piano for the orchestra, and created a whole new universe of sound. Dreams of Spain, the sensual awakening of spring and even an English folk song- they all found their way into the glowing impressionist landscape of Images. CBSO principal guest conductor Edward Gardner creates Debussy’s world anew, and shows how, over in Hungary, Béla Bartók was just as much in love with ravishing orchestral colours. Rising Argentinean star Ingrid Fliter takes the spotlight in Beethoven’s darkest piano concerto. www.cbso.co.uk
