  1. Overture, from Die Ruinen von Athen, 'The Ruins of Athens' Op 113 - Ludwig van Beethoven
  2. Concerto for Piano and Orchestra No 2 in B flat Op 83 - Johannes Brahms
  3. Symphony in C, 'Roma' WD 37 - Georges Bizet

Beethoven’s Overture to his incidental music The Ruins of Athens opens the evening with a portrait ideal of the old world, sublimely represented in classical style. 2018 Hastings International Piano Concerto Competition Winner Roman Kosyakov provides a thrilling interpretation to Brahms’s Piano Concerto No 2, an extraordinary and colossal work blends intense drama with a lightness of feeling in the exchanges between soloist and orchestra.

Written when the composer was barely seventeen years old, Bizet’s Symphony in C major demonstrates the extraordinary prowess of a youth who had yet to make a name for himself. Inspired heavily by his teacher Gounod, there is the versatility of expression demonstrated in the lyricism of the Adagio and the breathless tempo of the final Allegro Vivo.

This concert is kindly supported by the Fairlight Arts Trust.
