Cadogan Hall welcomes back Flanders Symphony Orchestra and its Chief Conductor Jan Latham-Koenig with a typically varied and beautiful programme of music. Joining them for Beethoven’s First Piano Concerto is the talented young pianist Pavel Kolesnikov.
The delightful choice of repertoire for the second half begins with Sibelius telling the tale of a mystical swan. The Sibelius swan is guarding Tuonela, the Finnish version of Hades, which is surrounded by a dark, wide river. Listen out for the cor anglais representing the swan’s elegant voice.
Edvard Grieg’s beloved Peer Gynt music was the result of a successful collaboration between Norway’s two greatest creative artists of the late 19th century – Ibsen and Grieg. It continues to delight audiences, containing some of his most memorable melodies.
