This quick-fire, late-evening concert brings the principal artistic powerhouses of this year’s Festival, Pierre-Laurent Aimard and George Benjamin, together at the piano to play Ravel’s glittering score, which in 2014 provided the resounding orchestral finale of the spectacular outdoor Musicircus event. Fellow Festival resident artists Mark Simpson, Jean-Guihen Queyras and Florent Boffard play Debussy, Isabelle Faust performs Benjamin’s violin miniatures and the premiere of Scottish composer Martin Suckling’s new clarinet trio completes the programme.
