Beethoven's First Piano Concerto

Liverpool Philharmonic Hall

Mozart Overture, The Abduction from the Seraglio
Beethoven Piano Concerto No. 1
Debussy Ibéria
Debussy La Mer

Vasily Petrenko conductor
Stephen Hough piano

Classic Intro 6.15pm- Stephen Johnson introduces us to the first two of Beethoven’s Piano Concertos, prior to Stephen Hough’s performances. Stephen broadcasts regularly for BBC Radio 3, 4 and the World Service, and presents Radio 3’s Discovering Music.

There’s only one Stephen Hough – the Heswall-born lad who’s been hailed as a “genius” in the USA and who is one of the most brilliant pianists in the world today. Here in Liverpool, we’re always delighted to welcome him home: and over five unmissable concerts he’ll be playing all five of Beethoven’s Piano Concertos. Today, he begins with the youthful energy of the First Concerto, and Vasily Petrenko surrounds it with wonders: a sparkling overture by Beethoven’s hero, Mozart, and Debussy’s gorgeous impressionist oil-painting of the sea in all its many moods, La Mer.

£15, £21, £27, £34, £44

Map & Directions

Road Directions

If you are coming to Liverpool on the M62, finding Liverpool Philharmonic is straightforward. Continue along the motorway until its end and then follow the signs for the city centre, cathedrals and universities (about 3 miles). Turn left at the Metropolitan Cathedral and head past the Everyman Theatre along Hope Street. If lost, use this maxim: find one cathedral, head for the other. Liverpool Philharmonic is halfway between the two.

Public Transport Directions

Liverpool Philharmonic is a 10 minute walk from both Lime Street Station and Central Station.
