The LPO is having a busy time this month.This week they are in Italy where Vladimir Jurowski will be conducting the recently re-discovered 1879 version of Tchaikovsky's Piano Concerto No. 1 with pianist Kirill Gerstein (who recorded it with the Deutsches-Symphonie Orchester Berlin and James Gaffigan, see my review). As a compare and contrast, the following evening they perform the traditional version with Daniil Trifonov at La Scala, Milan. The orchestra is also touring to Mexico with conductor Alondra de la Parra as part of the Year of Mexico in the United Kingdom 2015 where the programme includes RVW's Lark Ascending with Jennifer Pike along with music by Arnold, and Oliver Knussen, and Mahler's Resurrection Symphony. Later in September the orchestra will be touring to the Alte Opera, Frankfurt.
