BBC Symphony Orchestra
Joshua Weilerstein conductor
Jonathan Biss piano

Jonathan Biss performs Beethoven’s majestic ‘Emporer’ piano concerto alongside the UK premiere of Christopher Rouse’s Edgar Allan Poe-inspired Prospero’s Rooms and Lutosławski 's Concerto for Orchestra.

Expect a feast of dazzling virtuosity from the BBC SO’s players throughout Lutosławski 's ingenious stylisation of Polish folk melodies, led by the fast-rising conductor Joshua Weilerstein. Christopher Rouse draws on Poe’s The Masque of the Red Death and Leonid Andreyev’s symbolist play The Black Maskers for the musical narrative of his recent orchestral work.
