The second concert in Wuppertal of the Bayer stART Festival features the renowned Orchestre National de Lyon under their new musical director Nikolaj Szeps-Sznaider. The exciting programme is both a reference to the orchestra’s home country and the conductor’s homeland; it also stresses the cultural relationship between the two countries. The first half of the programme is purely French. The high point is the concerto for two pianos by Poulenc, a work which gives the already world-famous Jussen brothers every opportunity to demonstrate their impressive skills. This is followed, after the interval, by the famous suite from the ballet “Sleeping Beauty”. A Russian composer set a French fairy tale to music that was put on stage as a ballet in St. Petersburg by a Russian-French choreographer.
