6th SJE Arts International Piano Series

London Firebird Orchestra
Marc Corbett-Weaver, piano
George Jackson, conductor

Mozart: Overture to Die Zauberflöte, K. 620
Tchaikovsky: Piano Concerto No. 1 in B flat minor, Op. 23
Interval
Beethoven: Symphony No. 5 in C minor, Op. 67

Following a sell-out début at the Church of St John-the-Evangelist in 2017, London Firebird Orchestra – one of London’s finest orchestra’s of the younger generation – returns with a programme of dramatic classics.

Mozart’s spellbindingly energetic Overture to The Magic Flute and Beethoven’s mighty Fifth Symphony are coupled with Tchaikovsky’s romantically, ever-popular, Piano Concerto no. 1. The orchestra is joined by pianist Marc Corbett-Weaver, recently described by Musical Opinion Magazine as ‘an interpretive artist fully immersed in the subtleties and considerable technical demands of each composer’s writing.’
