Con brio means 'with brilliance', and that’s exactly what British pianist Paul Lewis will bring to Beethoven’s epic Emperor Concerto – the first in a year-long Beethoven concerto cycle. First, though, guest conductor Cristian Măcelaru detonates Jörg Widmann’s outrageous little spoof of Beethoven, and unleashes the raw energy of Dvořák’s Seventh Symphony. This tempestuous portrait of a nation awakening to freedom packs a serious emotional punch.

6:45pm Pre Concert Talk: Ursula Heidecker Allen (RSNO Violin) in conversation with Cristian Măcelaru
