BSO: Invitation to the Dance, Pavilion Theatre, Bournemouth

10.31.10
Shai Wosner

By Mike Marsh

DANCE seems more popular than ever today and this "invitation" came with a trio of stars.

Shai Wosner, soloist in Mozart's Piano Concerto No 25, proved a shining example of his generation with a sparkling performance that encompassed the difficulties with ease, delighting with the dancing rhythms of the outer movements and affording elegance and serenity within the Andante.

Petroc Trelawny's introductions were a model of clarity and knowledgeable enthusiasm sprung with just a twist of humour.

At centre stage, conductor Danail Rachev showed a happy disposition that naturally infected the BSO's ever-willing players to toe the line, here readily evoking a line of camels lugubriously swaying through desert heat in the Arabian Dance from Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker Suite.

From the same hand, the wonderful waltz from Eugene Onegin and two of Dvorak's Slavonic Dances, the thrusting No 8 opus 46 and the romantic, fading charm of No 2 opus 72, drew satisfying applause.

Weber's own Invitation to the Dance made a sumptuous start in Berlioz' brilliant orchestration.
