BBC Philharmonic | Beethoven’s Fifth

7 October 2023 @ 19:30 - 21:30

From £14.50

Join us for an evening of indulgence with Mark Wigglesworth as we treat ourselves to a trio of popular classics.

Mark Wigglesworth conductor
Sunwook Kim piano

Elgar Overture ‘Cockaigne (In London Town)’
Brahms Piano Concerto No. 2 in B flat major
Beethoven Symphony No. 5 in C minor

Described by Elgar as “honest, healthy, humorous and strong, but not vulgar”, his jovial painting of Edwardian London kicks things off in Overture ‘Cockaigne (In London Town)’. Less rambunctious but no less exciting is Brahms’s welcome affront to the concerto genre, his Second Piano Concerto performed by Sunwook Kim and laden with intimately intertwined melodies and gripping motifs. No motif is however more famous than the iconic knocking of fate as we finish the night with Beethoven’s untameable Fifth Symphony, rife with drama and addictive musical themes.
