In Ljubljana, Slovenia for a concert by one of the world’s great orchestras, the Royal Concertgebouw of Amsterdam under the baton of Mariss Jansons. Starting with Brahms ‘Variations on a Theme by Haydn’, the first half was completed by an immaculate performance of Shostakovich’s ‘Symphony no. 1’ The second half began with a wonderful performance of Ravel’s ‘Concerto for Piano and Orchestra in G Major’ with the great French pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet. The concert finale was an amazing rendition of Ravel’s ‘Daphnis et Chloé Suite no. 2’.
