Beethoven’s Emperor Concerto

Bellini Overture, Norma (06')
Haydn Symphony No.101 ‘Clock’ (27')
- INTERVAL - (20')
Beethoven Piano Concerto No.5 ‘Emperor’ (38')

Nil Venditti conductor
Pavel Kolesnikov piano

When Beethoven premiered his Fifth Piano Concerto, one of Napoleon’s soldiers got a bit carried away. He leapt to his feet and shouted “It’s the Emperor!”. That’s the story, anyway, but one thing’s definitely true: when Pavel Kolesnikov plays this majestic concerto, you’re in for an adventure on a truly imperial scale.

According to one critic Kolesnikov “has the Midas touch”; together with the inspirational young Italian-Turkish conductor Nil Venditti this will be a stirring climax to a concert bristling with melody and wit.
