Andrew Zolinsky plays Grieg

Royal Philharmonic Orchestra October 2018

Venue: Hexagon Theatre (Directions)

Sat 6 Oct, 19:30


Victor Aviat, Conductor
Andrew Zolinsky, Piano

Tragic Overture

Piano Concerto in A minor

Symphony No.3 'Eroica'

Brahms' expressive Tragic Overture opens the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra's 2018-19 season at The Hexagon with triumphant brass and heroic strings.

With driving, rousing outer movements and a touch of joie de vivre in the middle, Grieg's glorious Piano Concerto is rightly considered one of the greatest piano concertos of all time.

In contrast to the sweet and lyrical melodies of Grieg's masterpiece, Beethoven's 'Eroica' Symphony is grand and majestic, with the orchestra out in full force for this concert's finale.

Pre-concert talk 6.30pm
