APO Music Director, Andrew Taylor, explains, ‘It’s nearly six years since we completed our Beethoven symphony cycle, so some of the newer members won’t have experienced the thrilling cut and thrust of the way APO plays Beethoven. St. Joseph’s provides the perfect venue, as the hall is the perfect size and provides such a welcoming acoustic for this kind of music.’ As well as performing Beethoven’s Eighth Symphony and dramatic Coriolan Overture, APO will welcome back piano soloist Edward Reeve to perform the Fourth Piano Concerto, leaving just one more to go in his cycle of Beethoven piano concertos with the orchestra. Since making his concerto debut with APO at the age of just 14, Edward has gone on to great things - most recently performing a selection of his own Wagner piano transcriptions in an evening compered by Stephen Fry. The evening will also see APO say a sad goodbye to its long-standing leader, Neil MacLean, who is stepping down after over 15 years of dedicated service to the orchestra. To mark the occasion, a special addition to the programme will be made, for the audience to discover on the night!   St Joseph's College, Reading DD/MM/YYYY
