High jinks in overtures to two of the most brilliant comic operas

... in the repertoire reflect the inspiration of Rossini and J Strauss II (among others) in Stravinsky’s racily humourous and ironic “Ballet in four deals”. Mystery in this programme is provided by featured Finn Einojuhani Rautavaara’s Incantations, composed for that much-loved sorcerer of percussion Colin Currie. The composer’s compatriot John Storgårds, a master of unorthodox concert programming, conducts.
