We’re very pleased to be presenting again our old friends the Czech National Symphony Orchestra. Its American Music Director Steven Mercurio will begin the concert with Copland’s delightful portrait of the Appalachian countryside.
After this, the acclaimed pianist Mark Bebbington will play Beethoven’s grand ‘Emperor’ Concerto and in the second half the Orchestra will perform two much-loved Czech favourites – Smetana’s The Moldau and Dvořák’s Symphony No. 8.
‘…the lava tumbles out with astonishing force from Mark Bebbington, who plays with tremendous authority…’ BBC Music Magazine
