The Usher Hall announces its latest concert dates and details as it celebrates its centenary year.
The Usher Hall announces today that it will welcome the world renowned violinist Leonidas Kavakos to conduct the London Symphony Orchestra on Wednesday 4 June at 7.30pm.
Councillor Richard Lewis, Convener of Culture and Sport said: “It is a real pleasure to welcome such a renowned artist as Kavakos to the Usher Hall, especially in the company of this fantastic orchestra. The popularity of the London Symphony Orchestra is enduring and no doubt many people will be looking forward to seeing this wonderful orchestra in Edinburgh again.
The programme will present:
- Beethoven Overture
- Prometheus Beethoven Triple Concerto for Violin
- Cello, Piano and Orchestra Beethoven Symphony No 3 ‘Eroica'.
Leonidas Kavakos conductor/violin with:
- Tim Hugh cello
- Enrico Pace piano.
This concert was curated as part of the artist-led series ‘The LSO Invites…’ and is the only performance of this programme outside of London. The brilliant Leonidas Kavakos leads the orchestra in works that they know well from Beethoven’s illustrious ‘middle period’. The Triple Concerto is a treat, as it is not too often heard, and the ‘Eroica’ Symphony and The Creatures of Prometheus Overture share a theme.
