Paul Lewis CBE Piano

Royal Philharmonic Orchestra

The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and Music Director Designate Vasily Petrenko present monumental masterpieces from two of the greatest composers of all time, Beethoven and Tchaikovsky, as our streamed concert series from London’s Royal Albert Hall continues.

Internationally acclaimed pianist Paul Lewis performs regularly with the world’s greatest orchestras and is a multi-award-winning recording artist. Beethoven himself was a phenomenally gifted pianist and wrote five piano concertos that display a wealth of power and originality. Highly regarded for his interpretations of Beethoven, Paul Lewis performs Piano Concerto No.1 as part of this special concert.

Powerhouse conductor Vasily Petrenko is a notable interpreter of Tchaikovsky’s thrilling music. His Overture to The Voyevoda is a lively and, at times, dramatic opener, conjuring images of the Volga river. Completing this concert is one of the greatest romatic symphiones, Tchaikovsky’s Fifth, which offers the listener a profound insight into the composer’s tumultuous and emotional life.
