Alessio Bax — piano soloist with many of the world’s finest orchestras, and the LSO’s own Italian movie star — makes a welcome return to La Crosse to share his artistry in one the most beloved of Russian romantic piano concertos, used in countless moments in film and television but here in all its original glory! The evening’s first half celebrates some of the best British film scores through the years — the tip of the iceberg in great cinema traditions.
