Described as an orchestra of international renown that has been at the heart of British musical life for over 65 years, the illustrious Philharmonia Orchestra will be filling Cheltenham Town Hall with concertgoers on Tuesday 1 May 2012.
Conducted by the musical director of the Opéra Nationale de Paris, Philippe Jordan, audiences can expect a rich programme which will include Beethoven’s ‘Overture – leonore No.3,Op.726’, Liszt’s ‘Piano Concerto No.2 in A minor’ with Beethoven’s ‘Symphony No.5 in C minor, Op.67’ expected to prove particularly popular.
Celebrated pianist Simon Trpceski will be the soloist in Liszt’s concerto, who is described as a former BBC New Generation Artist, who has become something of a hero in his native country of Macedonia.
Indeed, The Independent wrote: ‘Trpceski shimmered over the keys, his nimbler articulation lightening and illuminating hackneyed passage-work until phrases began to sing with fantasy once more.’
With tickets costing from just £10, the opportunity to see such a globally regarded orchestra perform in Cheltenham is one fans of classical music will not want to miss.
