- Beethoven Egmont: Overture, 8′
- Beethoven Piano Concerto No. 3, 36′
- Stravinsky Petrushka, 35′
It’s springtime in old Russia, and as crowds throng the Shrovetide Fair, passions are rising. But a puppet can’t have feelings – can he? Stravinsky’s Petrushka is the ear-tingling climax to a supercharged concert, as charismatic guest conductor Gustavo Gimeno teams up with keyboard master Jeremy Denk in Beethoven’s most personal piano concerto, and revels in the drama and heroism of the overture to Egmont.
CBSO+ Saturday 23, 5.30pm: Join Bryony Morrison – Tutti Second Violin – and classical music writer and critic Richard Bratby as they talk about his new book exploring the CBSO, commissioned especially to celebrate our Centenary.
Please note the pre-concert talk will now start at 5.30pm, 15 minutes earlier than previously advertised, due to the Making an Entrance redevelopments. You will be asked to show your ticket for access into the pre-concert talk, and then invited to take your seat for the concert immediately after the talk concludes. Times of talks will be listed on the concert pages of the CBSO and THSH’s websites in advance, please check before making travel plans.
