Bold, heroic and full of energy - there's a reason Beethoven's final piano concerto is a real audience favourite.

You’re in for a true hero’s welcome at this concert, as pianist Cédric Tiberghien performs the boldest and most energetic of all Beethoven’s Piano Concertos. When paired with Prokofiev’s joyous yet frantic Fifth Symphony dedicated to “the greatness of the human spirit” and Wagner’s story of a mysterious knight - you’ll be buzzing with excitement as you head home.
