Domingo Hindoyan conducts Beethoven — With Nobuyuki Tsujii
Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra
Thank you for your understanding.
Extraordinary piano virtuoso Nobuyuki (Nobu) Tsujii joins the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra and maestro Domingo Hindoyan for an unforgettable all-Beethoven evening!
The program begins with the Overture from Beethoven's only full-length ballet, The Creatures of Prometheus, a radiant and lively work influenced by operatic music. Next, the astounding Nobu, blind from birth, takes the stage to perform the solo role in Beethoven's "Emperor" Piano Concerto No. 5, a sweeping and sublime masterpiece that transcends the military style that inspired it, with its heartstoppingly romantic Adagio and sparkling, Hungarian-inflected Rondo. Capping the festivities is the soul-warming "Pastoral" Symphony No. 6, premiered at the same legendary concert as the Fifth: a programmatic, highly evocative work that conjures up the composer's vivid impressions and emotions inspired by a walk through nature.
