Lukas Geniušas Piano

Beethoven Piano Concerto No 5 ‘Emperor’
Mendelssohn Symphony No 3 ‘Scottish’

Join the Orchestra and Principal Conductor Maxim Emelyanychev to celebrate the long awaited return to live performance with Beethoven at his grandest, and Mendelssohn at his most evocative. Multi-award-winning Russian pianist Lukas Geniušas brings his famed brilliance and boldness to Beethoven’s visionary ‘Emperor’ Concerto, one of the most powerful piano concertos ever written – yet a piece that’s also full of transcendental tenderness in its serene slow movement. The young Felix Mendelssohn made a career defining journey across Scotland in 1829, taking inspiration from the brooding ruins and swirling mists of ruined Holyrood Abbey for his vivid ‘Scottish’ Symphony, which plots a resolute course from mystery and menace to blazing triumph.
