Grand and dramatic, Beethoven’s Emperor Concerto has been winning the hearts of audiences for over 200 years. It’s understandable – anyone would get excited about this mighty masterpiece, especially when it’s played by the great pianist Elisabeth Leonskaja. Music Director Thomas Søndergård and the RSNO can’t wait to share the experience with you, alongside classical showstoppers by Beethoven’s mentor Haydn and the one and only Chevalier de Saint-Georges: swordsman, adventurer and composer extraordinaire.

In fond memory of Dorothy Rathband, who loved the RSNO, Beethoven, the piano and the Usher Hall – not necessarily always in that order!
