Following last year’s popular Beethoven: The Symphonies concert series, the orchestra doubles down on the German great, with its first national tour for 2015 set to feature the famous composer’s much-loved piano concertos, performed and directed by British piano star Freddy Kempf.
This charismatic force of nature at the piano is famous for his mesmerising finger work. This is the ideal concert series for this internationally acclaimed musician, who is on his fourth visit to New Zealand. He last performed with the NZSO in 2012 when he played works by Gershwin, Bernstein and Shostakovich.
Freddy and the NZSO hit the Horncastle Arena stage on Tuesday the 10th of March to present the Emperor Piano Concerto No. 5 and the fiery drama of the Third Piano Concerto. All concerts will also feature Beethoven’s Egmont Overture, conducted by Freddy.
Tickets are available from www.ticketek.co.nz.
