Part of the LONDON CONCERT SERIES 218/19
Described as ‘a pianist who has it all’, Uzbekistan-born Behzod Abduraimov continues his relationship with the ECO in this season finale and performs Beethoven’s First Piano Concerto, a work full of youthful energy that gives an unmistakable nod to Mozart. And it is Beethoven’s hero, Mozart, who dominates the rest of the programme with his fascinating Rondo in D and his Symphony No.38, ‘Prague’. The orchestra will also perform Stravinsky’s Concerto in D for string orchestra, one of his last tonal works and his first European commission after moving to America, under the direction of the ECO’s leader Stephanie Gonley.
