31 January in Routh Hall, Bromsgrove: LvB250 with Isata Kanneh-Mason

Isata Kanneh-Mason has raced to the forefront of her generation as one of the UK’s most charismatic, popular and admired young pianists. She makes her ESO debut as part of the orchestra’s celebration of Beethoven’s 250th Anniversary with a performance of his stormy Piano Concerto in C minor. Ruth Gipps was a musical genius ahead of her time, whose works abound in melodic inspiration. Her Cringlemire Garden is a touching and evocative portrait of the natural world. The concert ends with Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony, one of the most thrilling works in the repertoire.
