The Colours of Beethoven

Friday 11 May 2018, 7.30pm

BEETHOVEN Coriolan Overture

BEETHOVEN Piano Concerto No.3

BEETHOVEN Symphony No.4

Alexander Shelley Conductor
Jayson Gillham Piano

Royal Philharmonic Orchestra

The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra’ s Principal Associate Conductor leads this all-Beethoven programme, opening with Beethoven’s fiery and dramatic Coriolan Overture and ending with his radiant Symphony No.4.

From the fiery clashes of the opening to the singing, poetic phrases of the central movement, Beethoven’s Third Piano Concerto encapsulates the many sides of this ingenious composer’s personality. Performed here by Jayson Gillham, who ‘plays Beethoven with a sort of ‘glow’ (Sir Mark Elder), Beethoven’s masterpiece allows the pianist to show off his instrument as every bit as powerful and expressive as the entire orchestra around it.
