Sunday Classics at Edinburgh’s Usher Hall is a celebration of music from around the world. After their immensely successful debut tour of the UK in June 2022, we’re delighted to welcome back the Concerto Budapest Symphony Orchestra to open our season.
In the first half of the concert the orchestra will be joined by the distinguished French pianist Pierre-Laurent Aimard in a performance of Bartók’s elegiac Third Piano Concerto, which he composed at the end of his life.
In the second half, András Keller will conduct the orchestra in a performance of Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 5. Brimming over with drama and emotional intensity, the symphony charts a course from darkness to a final, life-affirming glimmer of optimism.
‘Keller’s vision is of a symphony orchestra that’s like an 80-strong chamber group, its members (metaphorically) singing together like a polyphonic choir’ (★★★★ The Times)
U16's must be accompanied by an adult 18+
