The Emperor Concerto
Relish Beethoven's majestic concerto in a broadcast performance from the London Philharmonic Orchestra and pianist Denis Kozhukhin.
'Other composers mix brightly-coloured cocktails', said Jean Sibelius. 'I offer pure, cool water.'
And in his Seventh Symphony he does exactly that: a masterpiece hewn from air, rock and water, as moving as it is elemental.
This is music to refresh the spirit and send the heart soaring: the perfect antidote to lockdown gloom, and the only possible way to follow Beethoven's Emperor Concerto.
LPO favourite Robin Ticciati conducts (The Arts Desk praised his 'clarity and focus'), and the LPO has invited the superb Russian pianist Denis Kozhukhin too.
Together, they'll bring out all the beauty, daring and grandeur of this most stirring of all piano concertos.
