Concert in which Vladimir Jurowski conducts the London Philharmonic Orchestra Matthias Pintscher: Towards Osiris. Beethoven: Piano Concerto No 5 (Emperor) (soloist - Lars Vogt).
Live from the Royal Festival Hall.
Presented by Martin Handley.
Vladimir Jurowski conducts the LPO in Bruckner's Symphony No 1 and a recent work by Matthias Pintscher. Pianist Lars Vogt joins them in Beethoven's "Emperor" Concerto.
'Das kecke Beserl' Anton Bruckner called his First Symphony - 'the saucy little maid'; it is a work of impish charm and bold impetuosity.
Before Beethoven's epic Emperor Concerto comes a veritable sculpture in sound by Matthias Pintscher, one of the most individual and ear-enchanting composers currently at work. He describes his multi-hued, intimate yet broad music as suggesting 'an imaginary theatre'; his powerful towards Osiris raises the curtain on this concert.
