BRAHMS Piano Concerto No. 2 in B flat major
WAGNER Siegfried Idyll
BEETHOVEN Symphony No. 5 in C minor
Michael Murray – conductor
Jessica Zhu – piano
Trinity Orchestra is delighted to welcome the impressive young Chinese-American pianist Jessica Zhu to perform Brahms’ joyful Second Piano Concerto – a tour de force of the instrument’s repertoire. Described as “outstanding” by The Independent, Jessica is the recipient of numerous accolades, including the First Prize at the 2011 Hastings International Piano Concerto Competition and the Audience Prize at the Sussex International Piano Competition.
In celebration of Wagner’s bicentenary, the orchestra will open the second half of the concert with the composer’s beautiful symphonic poem Siegfried Idyll, composed as a birthday gift for his wife Cosima. Beethoven’s famous Symphony No. 5 – one of the best known pieces of classical music ever written – will bring the concert to an exhilarating close.
Join conductor Michael Murray for a free pre-concert talk at 7pm, through which you can learn more about the evening’s music.
