Beethoven 'Pastoral' Symphony
Guest conductor Andrew Grams returns to lead the LPO in a celebration of innovation and the German Romantics. Co-commissioned by LPO and a consortium of other orchestras, Christopher Theofanidis’ tone poem Dreamtime Ancestors depicts the merging of past, present, and future in ancient aboriginal myths. Virtuoso pianist William Wolfram makes his LPO debut with Liszt’s bombastic Piano Concerto No. 1, a work never previously performed by the LPO. Finally, the program concludes with the rustic folk-like melodies of Beethoven’s Symphony No. 6, ‘Pastoral.’
