A showstopping end to the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra’s Royal Festival Hall concert series. Virtuosic pianist Kirill Gerstein opens the programme with one of the most energetic – and yet moving – piano masterpieces of its time, Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No.5, ‘Emperor’. Whilst the series concludes with Stravinsky’s complete score for The Firebird, a dramatic musical illustration of the Russian fairy tale.
