Beethoven Piano Concerto No. 5, Emperor

— Interval —

Shostakovich Symphony No. 10

At the end of his first season as current Principal Conductor, inspirational young Finn Santtu-Matias Rouvali brings two works of heroism and vision to the first of the Philharmonia’s concerts at this year’s International Festival.

Outstanding South Korean pianist Seong-Jin Cho, winner of the 2015 Chopin Competition, is the soloist in Beethoven’s ‘Emperor’ Concerto, one of the composer’s most dramatic but also most poetic creations. Shostakovich’s Tenth is among the composer’s most deeply felt symphonies, a savage critique of life under Stalin’s reign of terror, but also a moving love letter to a forbidden beloved.

The Philharmonia is Orchestra in Residence at this year’s Edinburgh International Festival. Catch us in different performances from chamber music to opera: Philharmonia at EIF 2022.
