Robert Moody, conductor
Maxim Lando, piano
SOWANDE African Suite
VAUGHAN-WILLIAMS Tallis Fantasia
SAINT-SAËNS Piano Concerto No. 2
The young pianist, Maxim Lando, has been described as “individualistic with over-the-top charisma”. Nigerian composer Fela Sowanda’s music integrated musical ideas from his West African musical traditions with his love for the music of Bach and Handel. The Vaughan-Williams Fantasia is one of the most hauntingly beautiful string works ever composed.
