Join the BBC Symphony Orchestra at BBC Maida Vale Studios as they perform music by Igor Stravinsky and Francis Poulenc. The young French-Romanian conductor Andrei Feher makes his debut with the BBC Symphony Orchestra in this studio concert.
The Fairy's Kiss is a ballet with music composed by the Russian composer Igor Stravinsky in 1928. The piece is based on Hans Christian Andersen's short story The Ice-Maiden. Stravinsky had known and loved the music of Tchaikovsky from childhood - he was taken to The Sleeping Beauty for the first time at the age of seven or eight. In The Fairy's Kiss, Stravinsky pays homage to Tchaikovsky, borrowing from a number of Tchaikovsky's songs and piano pieces. The Divertimento is a concert suite for orchestra based on music from the ballet.
The Sinfonietta is a work for orchestra by the French composer Francis Poulenc, written in 1947. It’s energetic, light and dance-infused music in four movements.

This concert will be recorded for future broadcast on BBC Radio 3.
