SÓN continue with their Beethoven 20:20 cycle, returning with internationally renowned pianist John Lill. Having performed the composer’s Third Piano Concerto in January 2018, this evening he plays the Piano Concerto No 4 on the Turner Sims’ renowned Steinway. This is Lill’s second, and penultimate, appearance with SÓN before next year’s performance of Beethoven’s Emperor Concerto; one that coincides with global celebrations of Beethoven’s 250th birthday.
As well as celebrating the composer’s final three piano concerti, SÓN’s epic cycle takes in all nine symphonies – this time, his programmatic symphony No 6 in F, nicknamed the Pastoral.
One of the major pianists of our time – awesome, fabulous, revelatory, quite overwhelming. Pianist Magazine
