Pierre-Laurent Aimard To Play Cardiff Concert

THE 2016/17 International Concert Series continues at St David’s Hall on February 22 as the Philharmonia Orchestra led by Essa-Pekka Salonen are joined by pianist Pierre-Laurent Aimard.

These two performers will combine forces for the nobility and grandeur of Beethoven’s Emperor Concerto, which was composed as Napoleon’s guns thundered across Vienna. Also on the repertoire is the iconic German composer’s Overture, Namensfeier.

The concert will close with a performance of Strauss’s Also Sprach Zarathustra, the music from Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey.
