Beethoven Piano Concerto No.5 ‘Emperor’
Beethoven Symphony No.7
Conductor/Piano Sunwook Kim

The ‘Emperor’ is the largest in scale of all Beethoven’s concertos. An epic tour de force, pitching soloist and orchestra in a musical argument of unprecedented breadth and scale, full chordal textures and wide dynamic range. A spirit of heroism infuses the music, whilst the sublime slow movement is one of his most profound. Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony was first performed at a mammoth concert in 1813 which was one of his greatest public successes. Described by Wagner as “the apotheosis of the dance”, with boundless energy and rhythmic impetus the music rages forward, almost demonically, with climax after climax, right to the brilliant final notes and one of the most thrilling endings in all music.
All BSO concerts this autumn will be available to watch in the Concert Hall or online.
