Swan Lake and More
The dark days just before Christmas are perhaps the best time of the year. The Norwegian romance of Grieg’s Piano Concerto with that stunning opening, splashing like a waterfall, brings warmth to every heart. Just like the unforgettable melodies of Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake. Featuring the debut of Argentinian piano virtuoso Nelson Goerner and Taiwanese-American conductor Mei-Ann Chen, who has been the talk of the town throughout the world of conducting for many years..
‘This Argentinian pianist possesses artistry of a very high order…Goerner purveys poetry as natural as breathing’ – BBC MUSIC MAGAZINE
A complete evening!
Tickets include wardrobe, coffee/tea and a drink during the intermission.
