Acclaimed violinist and conductor Pinchas Zukerman will lead one of the UK’s most prestigious orchestras in this evening of Beethoven and Mozart.

In 2016, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra (RPO) celebrated 70 years at the forefront of music-making in the UK. Its home base since 2004 at London’s Cadogan Hall serves as a springboard for fourteen residencies across the country, often in areas where access to live orchestral music is very limited. With a wider reach than any other UK large ensemble, the RPO has truly become Britain’s national orchestra.

German Masters: Beethoven and Mendelssohn Piano Trios.

Beethoven PianoTrio in B-flat major, Op. 97 (1811) and Mendelssohn Piano Trio in D minor, Op. 49 (1839).

Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827) was a German composer and pianist. A crucial figure in the transition between the Classical and Romantic eras in Western art music, he remains one of the most famous and influential of all composers. The Piano Trio in B-flat major, Op. 97 is commonly referred to as the Archduke Trio, because it was dedicated to Archduke Rudolph of Austria, the son of Leopold II, Holy Roman Emperor. The trio was written in the Beethoven's "middle period".

Show more >>

Felix Mendelssohn (1809-1847) was a German composer, pianist, organist and conductor of the early Romantic period. Mendelssohn enjoyed early success in Germany, where he also revived interest in the music of Johann Sebastian Bach, and in his travels throughout Europe. His essentially conservative musical tastes set him apart from many of his more adventurous musical contemporaries. Piano Trio No. 1 in D minor, Op. 49 was completed on September 23, 1839 and published the following year. The trio is one of Mendelssohn's most popular chamber works and recognized as one of his greatest pieces. During the composition of the work, Mendelssohn took the advice of a fellow composer, Ferdinand Hiller, and revised the piano part. This version was in a more romantic, Schumannesque style with the piano given a more important role in the trio. The revised piece was reviewed by Schumann who declared Mendelssohn to be "the Mozart of the nineteenth century, the most illuminating of musicians."

The Big Bang

Jul 25, 2018 to Sep 2, 2018 - various times - English

Music by Jed Feuer and book and lyrics by Boyd Graham.

In this whirlwind musical, two comedy writers try to raise enough “dough” for the most historically expansive show ever conceived, about the ENTIRE history of the universe. In a record 90 minutes, both actors are put to the test as they try to convince their potential theatrical backers (the audience) that this insane frivolity is somehow worthy of the authors’ unrealistic hopes and aspirations. The Big Bang has become the most asked about show in our 30-year history, and yes, we’re bringing it back with a BANG just for you!
