Elizabeth Sombart is the multi-award winning pianist, famed for her spirited understanding of Beethoven’s piano music. To celebrate 250 years since Beethoven’s birth, Sombart has recorded a series of his works with French conductor Pierre Vallet and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, culminating in this highly anticipated tour.

The concert opens with a sense of wonder and invention in the Overture to Mozart’s The Magic Flute; followed by Beethoven’s masterful Piano Concerto No 5, popularly known as the ‘Emperor’ Concerto. Much like an emperor, the piece is musically ‘big’ and imposing in character.
The evening climaxes with Beethoven’s Symphony No 3, ‘Eroica’ that broke new ground in terms of scale and grandeur when it was first performed over 200 years ago and continues to be one of the most celebrated works of all time.
