Rimsky-Korsakov’s tone poem Scheherazade is a sumptuous display of orchestral colour. Inspired by the Tales of One Thousand and One Nights the music is infused with the spice and mystery of the orient.

Rachmaninov’s Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini pays homage to the extraordinary 19th century virtuosi violinist, Paganini, through its own pianistic fireworks. Composed by Rachmaninov in 1934, the premiere featured the composer as soloist. The work found immediate favour with critics and audience alike and continues to astound and delight listeners today.

Le Guay has performed throughout the world with a glittering array of orchestras including London Philharmonic, Orchestre de Paris, the New Japan Philharmonic and Bayerische Rundfunk Orchestra. Her extensive discography has received great critical praise with Gramophon describing her playing as “vivacious, nimble and heartfelt”.

Arvo Pärt is an Estonian minimalist composer whose music takes inspiration from Gregorian chant and Medieval and Renaissance instrumental and vocal music. Fratres is an exquisite piece that conveys a sense of reverence and timelessness.
