Event details

This striking programme includes a symphony performed entirely from memory, a work of orchestral theatre from the incomparable imagination of Harrison Birtwistle, and a collaboration with rising star pianist Yeol Eum Son.

Known for her thoughtful interpretation of Mozart, Son performs Mozart’s A-major Piano Concerto K488, by turns jubilant and melancholic.

This masterpiece is paired with a rare opportunity to experience Birtwistle’s Cortege for 14 musicians, a virtuosic work in which musicians take turns to deliver a solo line from the centre of the ensemble, creating a kind of ritualised dance. Aurora then presents one of its distinctive memorised performances of a whole symphony with an electrifying interpretation of Beethoven’s Pastoral Symphony.

Harrison Birtwistle - Cortege
Mozart - Piano Concerto No. 23 in A, K488
Beethoven - Symphony No 6 in F, Op. 68 ‘Pastoral’ (from memory)

Yeol Eum Son - Piano
Nicholas Collon - Conductor

Ingrid Fliter was originally the piano soloist for this concert, but due to her forthcoming maternity leave, she regrets that she must cancel her appearance. We are thrilled to have Yeol Eum Son replace her.
