Thursday 16 & Sunday 19 January 2020 Various Times Liverpool Philharmonic Hall
Beethoven Prometheus (excerpts)
Mozart Bassoon Concerto
Beethoven Symphony No.3 ‘Eroica’
Andrew Manze conductor
Nina Ashton bassoon
‘If I understood war as well as I understand music, I would conquer him!’ Beethoven admired Napoleon’s ideals, but he hated his politics. Instead, with his explosive Eroica symphony, he blew the world of classical music wide open. Principal Guest Conductor Andrew Manze pairs it with the heavenstorming Prometheus, and teams up with the Orchestra’s own Nina Ashton for something completely different – the playful Bassoon Concerto by the teenage Mozart.
Post Concert Question Time (Thursday only) - starts 15 minutes after the concert ends (Music Room) with Andrew Manze.
