Grégoire Pont and Les Siècles celebrate double debuts at SBC!

François-Xavier Roth's stimulating French programme

Grégoire Pont charmed the Southbank Centre audience with his Cinesthetics performance of Ravel's Ma mère l'oye (Mother Goose).

François-Xavier Roth conducted his orchestra, Les Siècles, in a programme of works by Ravel and Debussy, including a performance of Ravel: Piano Concerto for the left hand, played on an 1892 Pleyel piano by Jean-Efflam Bavouzet.

... the sense of danger and restlessness ... Roth cultivated in a performance almost as bracing as a wild swim in November.
