With its rise and shine charm, Sir Kenneth MacMillan's Concerto has become one of the legendary choreographer's most popular works. Revelling in the airy textures of Shostakovich's piano concerto, the performers put on a sparkling display of technical virtuosity. "MacMillan's coquettish choreography takes no prisoners and requires great confidence and athletic prowess. In lesser hands, what could be merely flashy pyrotechnics with a sentimental middle section, here becomes a joyous, uplifting work" - The Sunday Star-Times
