Internationally acclaimed pianist Paul Lewis performs regularly with the world’s greatest orchestras and is a multi-award-winning recording artist. Beethoven himself was a phenomenally gifted pianist and wrote five piano concertos that display a wealth of power and originality. Highly regarded for his interpretations of Beethoven, Paul Lewis performs Piano Concerto No.1 as part of this special concert. // Powerhouse conductor Vasily Petrenko is a notable interpreter of Tchaikovsky’s thrilling music. His Overture to The Voyevoda is a lively and, at times, dramatic opener, conjuring images of the Volga river. Completing this concert is one of the greatest romatic symphiones, Tchaikovsky’s Fifth, which offers the listener a profound insight into the composer’s tumultuous and emotional life.
As Associate Orchestra of the Royal Albert Hall, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra is delighted to be a part of the Hall’s 150th Anniversary celebrations.
