Dvorák - Scherzo capriccioso
Chopin - Piano Concerto No.1*
Shostakovich - Symphony No.1
Eric Lu (Winner of Leeds International Piano Competition 2018), piano
Czech conductor, Tomás Hanus, conducts Dvorák’s Scherzo capriccioso, bursting with Bohemian charm. The latest winner of the Leeds International Piano Competition, Eric Lu, will then take centre stage for Chopin Piano Concerto No.1. Shostakovich’s astonishingly assured First Symphony lays out his youthful manifesto of where the symphonic form might go in the twentieth century, with an appreciative nod in the direction of tradition. More than anything, it’s great fun too!
*Please note that this work replaces Beethoven Piano Concerto No.1.
