(Lilya Zilberstein playing Poulenc)

Todays installment of the Mid-Week concert heads over to the Salle Metropole in Lausanne Switzerland for a concert by the Lausanne Chamber Orchestra, conducted by Christian Zacharias and featuring Lilya Zilberstein and Alexander Gurning, pianos playing the Poulenc Concerto for 2 Pianos and Orchestra. The concert, recorded by Radio Suisse Romande on October 9, 2007 starts off with Ravel's Le Tombeau de Couperin.

The announcements (all in French) are by Bertrand Decaillet.

This one ought to get you back on track.
