The orchestra will be joined by local pianist Stephen Meakins to perform Beethoven’s fourth piano concerto, described by a contemporary critic as ‘the most admirable, singular, artistic and complex Beethoven concerto ever’.  The concert will begin with Mendelssohn’s energetic Ruy Blas overture, and will conclude with Rachmaninoff’s second symphony, one which is rich and expansive and overflowing with late-Romantic lyricism.
