NZSO | Emperor (Tauranga)


Ross Harris | Cento
Beethoven | Piano Concerto No. 5 Emperor
R Schumann | Symphony No. 2

We finish our opening Immerse 2023 weekend with a concert of grandiose proportions. Featuring Ross HarrisCento and Robert Schumann’s Second Symphony, the showpiece will undoubtedly be Beethoven’s Emperor Concerto.

Out of the destruction and debris of war rose Beethoven’s Fifth Piano Concerto, when writing it, betrayed nothing of the turmoil he was surrounded by. While he likely wouldn’t have approved of the Emperor title, it’s actually a very appropriate name for the piece itself, reflecting the nobility, dignity, poise, regality and mana of the work.

Pianist Paul Lewis returns to complete the full Beethoven Piano cycle with this seminal work.

Additional performances:

Wellington (11 May)
Christchurch (21 May)
