The Orchestra throws down the challenge. The piano takes centre stage – and Tchaikovsky begins the grandest of all Romantic piano concertos in the grandest possible style. “Both musicians are bursting with fire, and seem joined at the hip” said one critic of the Petrenko / Trpčeski partnership – so imagine the electricity when they perform live, in a concert that opens with Scriabin’s dreamy Reverie and ends with the epic grandeur of Prokofiev’s shattering Sixth Symphony. If, like so many, you’ve been thrilled by Petrenko’s Shostakovich symphonies with the Orchestra, we think you’ll be knocked backwards by this tragic masterpiece from the darkest years of the Stalin era: music whose message never gets any less powerful.
This concert will finish at approx. 9.25pm.
Artist in Residence: Simon Trpčeski
Macedonian pianist Simon Trpčeski is a Liverpool favourite whose recording of the Rachmaninov Piano Concertos Nos.2 and 3 with the Orchestra won the coveted Diapason d’Or de l’Année in France. He is one of four Artists in Residence, new for the 2013/14 season. Read more about his residency.
Chief Conductor Vasily Petrenko and Artist in Residence Simon Trpčeski answer your questions about tonight’s performance in the Grand Foyer Bar. (Starts 15 minutes after the concert)
NEW – Reserve and pre-pay for parking for Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra Concerts
We know that parking has become more difficult around Philharmonic Hall with the closure of the car park on Myrtle Street.
We have been looking for ways to improve the situation and to that end are delighted to announce that we will offer pre-paid parking for selected Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra concerts at Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral. The cathedral offers secure, manned underground parking an easy 5 minute walk from Philharmonic Hall and is open until 11pm on concert nights.
