Flanders Symphony Orchestra with John Lill on Friday 18th May 2018
British pianist John Lill, who performed at the very first Newbury Spring Festival, returns with Beethoven’s ground-breaking first Piano Concerto. The rest of the programme is on a Scandinavian theme, opening with Delius’ homage to spring, and continues in the second half with some of the most popular works by Sibelius and Grieg.
Flanders Symphony Orchestra boasts over half a century of experience, its musicians creating
a musical bridge between past and present, with stylish interpretations of the familiar symphonic repertoire tempered with their exploration of innovative contemporary paths. It is a delight to welcome them under the baton of British conductor Jan Latham Koenig, who makes his Newbury Spring Festival debut.
