Performers and Cast

Pierre-Laurent Aimard

The opening movement of Beethoven's Third Piano Concerto is full of tension and drama. The slow movement is a lyrical dialogue between the soloist and woodwinds, while the vivacious finale is a rondo, punctuated with quicksilver piano cadenzas, which bounds to a joyful conclusion.

The concert ends with Dvořák's most powerful and dramatic symphony, first conducted in London by the composer himself to scenes of overwhelming enthusiasm. While influenced by the German tradition, it retains Dvořák's own winning brand of melody. 

The Philharmonia Orchestra is Anvil Arts' Orchestra in Partnership.
