Scottish Chamber Orchestra: Pizarro plays Beethoven

6 December 2012 at 7:30pm
at The Queen's Hall

Rautavaara: Into the Heart of Light UK premiere
Beethoven: Piano Concerto No 2
Mendelssohn: Symphony No 5 ‘Reformation’

John Storgårds - Conductor  
Artur Pizarro - Piano

Charismatic Finn John Storgårds returns to the SCO with a new work from his famous countryman, Einojuhani Rautavaara, and Mendelssohn’s majestic ‘Reformation’ Symphony. It was written to celebrate the 300th anniversary of the Augsburg Confession – the statement of Lutheran beliefs and practices presented to the Emperor Charles V in 1530; Mendelssohn captures the mystery and awe of the revelation, but also the fire and drama of Luther’s story. Pizarro’s performances of Beethoven have been described as an ‘unalloyed delight’. Not to be missed.
