London-born, but of?Lithuanian and Latvian lineage, Mathilde Milwidsky brings this cosmopolitan mix to her programme. A former student of old Festival friend Gy?rgy Pauk at the Royal Academy of Music, we bow to his Hungarian roots, and Hungary and Romania?s centenary, with Bart?k?s Romanian folk arrangements to open, and Ravel?s showpiece for Hungarian virtuoso Jelly d?Ar?nyi to close. We also light 100 candles for Estonia, in Arvo P?rt?s transcendental work. While LDSM is marking Michael Berkeley?s 70th birthday, today?s premi?re was written as in memoriam tribute to Sir John Manduell, who would have been pleased to be remembered alongside a new work by Sally Beamish commissioned by Mathilde. More from Mathilde ? and more P?rt ? in our closing concert tomorrow night, and more Grieg tonight.
