    Paul Lewis (piano) | Beethoven's final piano sonatas
    Paul Lewis
    St George's Hall Concert Room Liverpool L1 1JJ
    United Kingdom

    Paul Lewis was born in Huyton, and his reputation as an interpreter of the great classics of the piano repertoire has gone around the world. Famed for his Schubert interpretations, anything that Lewis chooses to play demands to be heard, and it’s fascinating that for this recital as part of his Liverpool residency, he’s gone for Beethoven’s visionary final trilogy of piano sonatas – playful, elusive and ravishingly beautiful; music that asks the very deepest questions. Lewis’s answers will be profoundly worth hearing.

    Sonata for Piano No 30 in E
    Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827)
    Sonata for Piano No 31 in A flat
    Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827)

    Scheherazade | Royal Philharmonic Orchestra
    Eduardo Portal, Natalie Clein, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra
    Wycombe Swan Theatre High Wycombe HP11 2XE
    United Kingdom

    A display of quintessentially Czech music from two Bohemian legends, with Smetana’s exhilarating overture to his first and most enduring comic opera The Bartered Bride and Dvorák's magnificent Cello Concerto, performed by world-class cellis Natalie Clein. Although composed in America, it expresses the melodic inflections derived from Czech folk music with a continuous flow of invention and lyricism.

    Young Spanish maestro Eduardo Portal leads the Orchestra in the tale of ‘One Thousand and One Nights’ in Rinsky-Korsakov’s colourful epic, Scheherazade. A haunting solo violin (Scheherazade), menacing brass fanfares (the Sultan) and the strumming of a harp present a mystical far-away land.

    Join the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra on a journey to the mysterious East, where wonders have to be heard to be believed.

    Overture from The Bartered Bride
    Bedrich Smetana (1824-1884)
    Cello Concerto in A
    Antonín Dvorák (1841-1904)
    Scheherazade
    Nikolay Rimsky-Korsakov (1844-1908)
