The Konzerthausorchester Berlin has been delighting audiences for more than 50 years. Their three-concert mini residency at Cadogan Hall in 2009 was a great success and we are delighted to welcome them back to close the 2011/12 Zurich season.
The soloist for the evening is 18-year-old pianist Kit Armstrong, who, since making his concerto debut at the age of eight, has given recitals and concerto performances around the world to great critical acclaim. He joins the orchestra to play Schumann’s romantic Piano Concerto, written by the composer for his pianist wife Clara.
The programme concludes with Beethoven’s mighty Eroica Symphony, a heady musical mix of revolutionary fervour and introspective angst.
