Programme Note

Tonight the RPO, conducted by the award-winning Josep Caballé Domenech, gives an all-Beethoven concert. Our resident orchestra begins with Beethoven'€™s turbulent Symphony No. 2 and then vivacious Symphony No. 4, so enamoured by the latter symphony, Mendelssohn chose it to be performed at his first concert at Gewandhaus in Leipzig.

Brilliant pianist Freddy Kempf joins the RPO with a performance of Beethoven'€™s glittering Piano Concerto No. 1. The piece, which was written during 1796 and 1797, showcases the piano in all its glory; piano and orchestra alternate throughout the composition, as was appropriate for the early period.
