François-Xavier Roth Conductor

Yuja Wang Piano

Lindberg Piano Concerto No.3
Beethoven Symphony No.6 in F Major, Op.68 Pastoral

Written especially for Chinese keyboard sensation Yuja Wang, Magnus Lindberg’s new Piano Concerto No.3 is a huge three movement work of almost operatic dimensions and drama, complete with two flamboyant cadenzas designed to showcase the soloist’s virtuosity. Hailed by the Financial Times after its San Francisco premiere last October as both ‘ravishing’ and ‘alternately grand and intimately beautiful’, it’s brought to Brighton fresh from its UK premiere at the LSO’s Barbican home.

Beethoven’s evergreen Pastoral Symphony, expressing the composer’s profound love of the countryside in quasi-pictorial detail, ends this concert under the truly inspirational French conductor and pioneer François-Xavier Roth.
