The London based Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra will perform for one night only at the Megaron Concert Hall in Athens. Appearing with internationally acclaimed pianist and conductor, Vassilis Tsabropoulos, they will perform Beethoven’s majestic Coriolan Overture, written in 1807 for Heinrich Joseph von Collin’s 1804 tragedy Coriolan; and two of the finest works for piano and orchestra, Mozart’s dramatic Concerto in D minor that Beethoven loved and included in his repertoire, and Beethoven’s own superb Emperor Concerto.
In its 32-year history, the dynamic and versatile Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra, formed out of the main body of the legendary Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, has collaborated with such singers as José Carreras, Kiri Te Kanawa, Luciano Pavarotti and Anna Netrebko.
The programme will also include:
W. A. Mozart: Piano Concerto No. 20 in D minor, K. 466
L. van Beethoven: Coriolan Overture, Op. 62
Piano Concerto No. 5 in E-flat major, Op. 73, ‘Emperor’
