Change of programme

Please note that, due to injury, Paul Lewis will now perform Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 25 in C, K503 instead of Piano Concerto No.1 by Tchaikovsky as originally listed.

Roberto González-Monjas conductor
Paul Lewis piano
Belgian National Orchestra

Mikhail Glinka Ruslan and Lyudmila Overture
Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto No. 1
César Franck Symphony in D minor

Join us in belle-époque Paris in all its ritzy, raucous colour to hear César Franck’s extraordinary Symphony in D minor – for decades, one of the world’s most popular classics. In his 200th birthday year, this great Belgian symphony will make a magnificent showcase for Belgium’s national orchestra. Add Glinka’s firecracker of an overture, and the masterly Paul Lewis playing Tchaikovsky’s hugely popular First Piano Concerto and there’ll be melodies and magic all round.
