French Impressionism and Italian splendour

In his Nocturnes, Claude Debussy paints Impressionistic mood pictures: the shades of a cloudy sky, a nocturnal festival and the legendary song of the sirens. The programme also includes Ferruccio Busoni’s sonorous Piano Concerto. It builds a bridge from the Romantic period to the modern era and pushes the boundaries of the genre with its use of a male choir. Under the baton of Sakari Oramo, Kirill Gerstein plays the breathtaking solo part.
