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.”
Austrian conductor Hans Graf leads an evening of some of the most sublime orchestral works Beethoven ever produced. The theatrical overture to Coriolan opens the concert with dramatic tragedy, portraying the legendary Roman figure.
Soloist Jae-Hyuck Cho performs Beethoven’s ingenious Piano Concerto No. 1 with subtlety and intricacy before the Orchestra performs the composer’s Symphony No. 8. Bearing much joyful and vigorous aplomb, the Symphony adopts much of Beethoven’s own characterful style throughout and displays his masterstrokes in experimentation with the symphonic form.
