Katie Derham introduces a mix of European and Latin American repertoire, performed by the Sao Paulo Symphony Orchestra (Osesp). First, opening the afternoon, Milhaud's La création du monde, followed by two pieces by Poulenc, his Concerto for 2 Pianos with soloists Eric Le Sage and Frank Braley, and his suite from Les Biches. Then comes Gershwin's An American in Paris, closing this concert conducted by Stephane Deneve. It's followed by the premiere of a piece by the contemporary Brazilian composer Aylton Escobar called A Rua dos Douradores (Litany of Hopelessness), commissioned by the Osesp, and then Sibelius's Symphony No. 6, this time with Osmo Vanska at the helm, conducting the Sao Paulo Symphony Orchestra.
