Lars Vogt – Director/Piano
Royal Northern Sinfonia
BEETHOVEN Piano Concerto No. 2
BEETHOVEN: Piano Concerto No. 3
BEETHOVEN Piano Concerto No. 5
The thrilling musical chemistry between Lars Vogt and his orchestra is never stronger than when he directs them from the keyboard, and we are delighted to welcome them back for this unmissable chance to hear them in three of Beethoven’s piano concertos.
The B flat concerto has an almost Mozartian lightness of touch whereas the C minor has true Beethovenian grit and drive. And to hear Vogt, one of today’s finest pianists, play the noble ‘Emperor’ with his own orchestra is sure to be a profoundly moving experience.
“Lars Vogt’s cycle of the five piano concertos with the Royal Northern Sinfonia has gained such momentum that the sold-out concerts have become beg-for-a-ticket occasions.” The Guardian
As well as Royal Northern Sinfonia’s main series of concerts at Sage Gateshead, the orchestra regularly performs at external venues, both nationally and internationally. Here’s what is coming up in the next few months.
