Riviera Insider has three exciting prizes up for grabs thanks to our very talented friends at the Orchestre Régional de Cannes, which will enchant any who love the immortal sounds of piano and percussion.
First up, we have two sets of front row tickets (for two) worth 60€ each for the David Kadouch concert on 27th November. Kadouch is an impassioned, young French pianist who began his musical days at the Conservatoire de Nice before heading to Paris’ esteemed Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique. At the tender age of 13, Kadouch was playing at New York’s Met Opera and the following year, he played Carnegie Hall. For this concert (4.30pm at the Théâtre Croisette), Kadouch will play Piano Concerto No.1 and Totentanz by Liszt. Quentin Hindley, will also lead his musicians in Beethoven’s Symphony No.2, which was written while the composer struggled with depression and suicidal thoughts, but remains one of his most cheerful and spirited.
Our second prize is three lots of tickets for two worth 60€ each for the Sympho New Percussions concert on 18th December at 4.30pm in the Théâtre Debussy in Cannes’ Palais des Festivals. It is a bespoke concert that aims to open the eyes of spectators to the often misunderstood and lesser respected art of percussion. Expect instruments of all shapes, sizes and sounds!
And to provide the background to your festive season, we are also giving away the latest recordings of the orchestra - Mozart on the beach, Lanner and Auber - in CD format.
