Beethoven’s heroic voice is on full display with his greatest piano concerto performed by award-winning pianist Alessio Bax, whom Gramophone called “clearly among the most remarkable young pianists now before the public,” in their review of his recording of the same work. Reid’s Petrichor redefines ‘surround sound’ with spatialized musicians, shimmering strings and bright winds throughout the hall. Lockington is sure to deliver Latin sizzle with the rapturous rhythms and sultry melodies of DeFalla and Marquez.
