Overview

In its 32-year history, the dynamic and versatile Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra, formed out of the main body of the legendary Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, has collaborated with such singers as José Carreras, Kiri Te Kanawa, Luciano Pavarotti, and Anna Netrebko. In tonight’s concert, it appears with internationally acclaimed pianist/conductor Vassilis Tsabropoulos in great classical works: Beethoven’s majestic Coriolan Overture, written in 1807 for Heinrich Joseph von Collin’s 1804 tragedy Coriolan; and two of the finest works for piano and orchestra, Mozart’s dramatic Concerto in D minor that Beethoven loved and included in his repertoire, and Beethoven’s own superb Emperor Concerto.
