Schumann Piano Concerto


Beethoven Symphony No. 9, Choral

Our 70th Anniversary Season opens with a work that has been celebrated throughout the Philharmonia Orchestra’s esteemed performance history, led by one of its greatest conductors. Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony is a work of epic proportions, erupting in an ‘Ode to Joy’ choral finale. Before it, Schumann's Piano Concerto is performed by the superlative pianist, Martin Helmchen.
