London Philharmonic Orchestra: Drama and Sunshine

Congress Theatre, Eastbourne
Beethoven Egmont Overture
Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto No. 1
Brahms Symphony No. 2
Catherine Larsen-Maguire conductor
Igor Tchetuev piano
The horns throw down the gauntlet, the piano accepts the challenge – and with one of the greatest melodies in 19th century music, Tchaikovsky’s First Piano Concerto sweeps into action. Is this the ultimate Romantic piano concerto? We just know that it demands a pianist with hands of steel and a heart of gold: in other words, it could have been written for our soloist today, the phenomenal Igor Tchetuev.
But then, this is a concert filled with epic adventures — and whether it’s Beethoven’s stirring drama of struggle and freedom, or the majestic, sun-kissed slopes of Brahms’s radiant Second Symphony, conductor Catherine Larsen-Maguire won’t stint on the emotion.
Eastbourne unLtd Chamber of Commerce is delighted to welcome the LPO as a Chamber member and integral part of our Cuture Club.
