Sunday 9 February 2020 2:30pm Liverpool Philharmonic Hall
Beethoven Piano Concerto No.5 ‘Emperor’
Bruckner Symphony No.4 ‘Romantic’
Andrew Manze conductor
Yeol Eum Son piano
Beethoven never actually named his fifth piano concerto ‘The Emperor’, but the name given to it by his English publisher just seemed to fit. The Orchestra lays down the challenge; the piano takes no prisoners – this is a musical duel on the grandest possible scale, and as the award-winning Korean pianist Yeol Eum Son makes her Liverpool debut, you won’t have heard anything quite like it. Then we’re off into the misty mountains and fairy-tale forests of Bruckner’s huge ‘Romantic’ symphony: conductor Andrew Manze knows the scenic route!
