Mark Anthony Turnage’s Speranza (‘Hope’) is a monument to the power of optimism in a bleak world – ‘I started working on the piece while thinking about the absence of hope. I wanted to lift people up.’ Beethoven’s Third Piano Concerto offers the composer’s trademark thundering drama juxtaposed with sweet grace. While Tapiola spoke of forest Gods, the rippling Oceanides breathes life into the female water spirits of Greek mythology.
