Triumphant opening of the Gothenburg Symphony's concert season in the Gothenburg Concert Hall, with Santtu-Matias Rouvali conducting and Leif Ove Andsnes on piano!
Santtu-Matias Rouvali opens the season with the triumphant 5th Piano Concerto by Beethoven, the Emperor Concerto. Norwegian star pianist Leif Ove Andsnes elegantly handles the piano keys, as gracefully as the puppeteer dances through Stravinsky’s ballet Petrusjka.
The piano concerto is Beethoven’s last and the most famous with its heroic themes. The composer himself could no longer play at the premiere, he had become too deaf to play with the orchestra.
The evening opens with an orchestral masterpiece by child prodigy Lili Boulanger. She was only 24 years old but managed to amaze the whole world. That spring morning in Paris she dressed in tones was completed shortly before her death in 1918.
Stravinsky’s ballet Petrushka takes place in a Russian puppet theater during carnival time. In the music, we hear both folk melodies and waltzes from Vienna, but reworked and with harmonies that bite.
Get to know the classical pieces.
Take a seat in the Great Hall one hour before the concert begins and learn more about the music you will soon experience! You will get the stories behind the music, knowledge of the composers and own reflections about the classical pieces. The introduction last for about 30 minutes, it is free and free seating in the hall. Warm welcome!
