Two masterpieces from 19th-century Vienna, Beethoven’s 3rd Piano Concerto and Bruckner’s 3rd Symphony, are explored by the Tonerl Symphony Orchestra in a concert which moves from the serenity of Beethoven’s Largo to the towering and colossal ending of Bruckner’s Symphony. While the Concerto is very much part of the standard repertoire, the Symphony (sometimes known as the Wagner Symphony) is only now emerging from years of neglect. This emergence will see the often misunderstood and neglected Bruckner finally taking his rightful eminence amongst composers.
The Tonerl Symphony Orchestra is a group of rising young musicians from the London music colleges. Its conductor, Henry Kennedy, is a passionate and enthusiastic advocate of Bruckner’s genius. The piano soloist will be Andrei Iliushkin, recent winner of the Intercollegiate Beethoven Piano Society of Europe Competition and winner of the Worshipful Company of Musicians Beethoven Medal.
The concert is in support of the Parkinson's UK Charity.
