The genre of dance, complete with its variations and deconstructions is the theme of this concert by the London Symphony Orchestra under Sir Simon Rattle. The programme includes: the concert overture “Le Corsaire” by Hector Berlioz, whose vibrant character gives way to the rugged sounds of Daniel Kidane, whose “Sun Poem” are then followed by works from Maurice Ravel, Jean Sibelius and Béla Bartók.
