Bernstein         Three Dance Episodes from On the Town
Beethoven        Piano Concerto no. 5
Sibelius             Symphony no. 5

Angela Hewitt piano
Yutaka Sado

The jaunty overture to Bernstein’s hit show which follows three sailors in New York makes a rousing opening to this concert in his centenary year. Beethoven’s last piano concerto is his most brilliant and powerful. The confident outer movements are balanced by an inward-looking slow movement, which moves into the finale with a simple but magical transition. Sibelius’ fifth and most well-known symphony grows from the seed of its tiny opening figure to the most outwardly heroic of his seven works in the form. The final majestic brass theme was inspired by a flight of swans the awe-struck composer saw wheeling over his house in the countryside.
