Program notes

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.
