English Chamber Orchestra with Christian Zacharias

19:30 Queen Elizabeth Hall, London

Part of the LONDON CONCERT SERIES 2018/19

Known for his insightful interpretations, German master-pianist Christian Zacharias returns to work with the ECO as both soloist and conductor in works that perfectly showcase his artistry. He performs Beethoven’s Third Piano Concerto, a work that expresses the composer’s turbulent feelings towards his uncertain future through dramatic and melancholy melodies. Zacharias conducts a selection of movements from Beethoven’s enchanting ballet score The Creatures of Prometheus and Schoenberg’s innovative tone poem Verklarte Nacht (Transfigured Night), performed here in its orchestral version. This work is a favourite of the ECO, the orchestra having recorded it three times previously.

  1. Beethoven Movements from The Creatures of Prometheus, Op.43
  2. Schoenberg Verklarte Nacht, Op. 4 (Orchestral version)
  3. Beethoven Piano Concerto No.3 in C minor, Op.37
Christian Zacharias
