A note from the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra:
“Following the Government’s announcement encouraging social distancing, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra (RPO) will cease its concert programme until the end of June 2020. Given the health risks presented by the spread of the coronavirus pandemic, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra is acutely aware of the need to protect the health of concert-goers, venue staff and the ensemble itself.
With millions of people self-isolating and working from home, the RPO will soon be introducing a comprehensive ‘RPO At Home’ digital programme that is intended to enrich people’s home routines, to help lift spirits during these unprecedented times.
Please do keep in touch by visiting the Orchestra’s website and social media channels, where you can find videos, blogs and Podcasts.”
Pinchas Zukerman directs a festival celebrating the genius of Beethoven, 250 years after his birth. John Suchet presents.
In partnership with Classic FM.
‘I am thrilled to be presenting this series with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. No single word sums up Beethoven – the individual and his music – better than ‘revolutionary’. First of all, he was a revolutionary in ideas… In music too Beethoven was a revolutionary. He transformed every form in which he wrote. Nobody had started a symphony with two crashing chords, as he did in the Eroica. No one had begun a piano concerto with solo piano, as he did in Piano Concerto No. 4… Beethoven’s music takes you by surprise at every turn, however well you know it. It is as fresh today as it was when he wrote it 200 years ago. That is his gift to us.’ — John Suchet
