Rossini Overture: Barber of Seville
Grieg Piano Concerto in A minor Op.16

Our first concert of 2017 welcomes two of Britain’s most talented young artists to Brighton.
Ben Gernon won the internationally acclaimed Nestlé and Salzburg Festival Young Conductors Award in 2013, and in the same year became a Dudamel Fellow with the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra. He made his BBC Prom debut in 2014 and has since worked with all the major London and BBC orchestras.
Ben is joined by the 2015 Gramophone Young Artist of the Year, Joseph Moog, to play the ever popular Greig Piano Concerto.
Dvořák’s Eighth Symphony, written in 1889, was premiered the following year with Dvořák conducting; it is renowned as a lyrical and cheerful work inspired by the folk music of his country home in Bohemia.
Before this concert, there will be an interview featuring Peter Back in conversation with pianist Joseph Moog. See here for more information and to book tickets.
