BEETHOVEN Piano Concerto No. 5 'Emperor'

STRAVINSKY The Firebird (complete ballet)

Conductor TBC
Kirill Gerstein

Royal Philharmonic Orchestra


A showstopping end to the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra’s Royal Festival Hall concert series. Virtuosic pianist Kirill Gerstein opens the programme with one of the most energetic – and yet moving – piano masterpieces of its time, Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No.5, ‘Emperor’. Whilst the series concludes with Stravinsky’s complete score for The Firebird, a dramatic musical illustration of the Russian fairy tale. 

We regret that, due to unforeseen circumstances, Kirill Gerstein replaces Kyung Wha Chung as the soloist for this concert performing Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No.5, ‘Emperor’ in place of Brahms’ Violin Concerto. Tickets already purchased are still valid.

This concert will be broadcast live on BBC Radio 3.
