Britten Sinfonia - Angela Hewitt Directs

Britten Sinfonia - Angela Hewitt Directs

Wednesday, January 16, 2013 - 19:30

Acknowledged as one of the finest pianists of her generation, Angela Hewitt makes an eagerly awaited return to direct Britten Sinfonia following her 2011 performances of Mozart and Bach.

In this concert she performs two of Beethoven’s famed piano concertos: his youthful second, and intimate and serene fourth, a pillar of the piano concerto repertoire. Alongside the two concertos, violinist Thomas Gould directs the orchestra in Wagner’s Siegfried Idyll and Sibelius’ ethereal Scene with Cranes.

Concerto for Piano and Orchestra No 2 in B flat
