SÓn With John Lill | Beethoven Gala
SATURDAY 01 FEBRUARY - 7:30 PM
Symphony No 4 in B flat, Op 60
Piano Concerto No 5 in E flat, Op 73 Emperor
In Beethoven’s 250th anniversary year SÓN’s three-year journey with celebrated pianist John Lill concludes with the last, longest, and arguably greatest of the composer’s five piano concertos. The Emperor is paired with Beethoven’s classical fourth symphony, described by Robert Schumann as ‘a slender Greek maiden between two Norse giants,’ reflecting its place between the epic Third and Fifth symphonies.
Fresh, vital playing from such fine players. John Lill
