The position will last for 3 years, and Ludovic has just conducted his first concerts under this new title. The first concert in this position was a programme of Milhaud Le Boeuf sur le toit, Ravel Piano Concerto in G major with Steven Osborne, and Prokofiev Symphony No. 5 at Bridgewater Hall in Manchester, with excellent reviews:
“This brilliantly conceived programme of French and Russian music was most notable for Steven Osborne’s thrilling rendition of the Ravel Piano Concerto… The first movement at once hit an ambitious sense of drive, though the more mellow corners were also full of memorable surprises, most of all the wildly jazzy bassoon solo.” ⋆⋆⋆⋆ Rohan Shotton, Bachtrack
The concert was broadcast live on BBC Radio 3, and you can listen again here.
