The iconic Maria João Pires returns to the LCO for one of her favourite concertos – Beethoven’s Fourth.
Not only a great pianist but also an ardent nurturer of young talent, Pires has recently launched the Partitura Project – bringing together artists of different generations. As part of the project’s inaugural season, the Armenian Ashot Khachatourian plays one of Mozart’s most insouciant works, the Concert Rondo, K.386.
Beethoven knew his Seventh Symphony was special – even by his standards! So did Wagner when he described its irrepressible last movement as the ‘apotheosis of the dance’.
Initiated by Maria João Pires, the aim of the Partitura Project is to create an altruistic dynamic between artists of different generations and to offer an alternative in a world too often focused on competitiveness. Read more here: Partitura Project
