Classical music

Royal Philharmonic Orchestra - Stravinsky, Beethoven

Part of Classical Season 2017/18

A showstopping end to the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra’s Royal Festival Hall concert series.

Stravinsky's Scherzo a la russe creates a lively opening before virtuosic pianist Kirill Gerstein performs one of the most energetic – and yet moving – piano masterpieces of its time, Beethoven’s `Emperor' Piano Concerto. The series concludes with Stravinsky’s complete score for The Firebird, a dramatic musical illustration of the Russian fairy tale.

The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra is very grateful to Krzysztof Urbanski who will be replacing Charles Dutoit, who has recently stepped down as Artistic Director and Principal Conductor of the Orchestra.
