Is Grieg’s Piano Concerto in A Minor the world’s most famous piano concerto? It is certainly one of the most performed. This evening, the young and rising star Joseph Moog will perform on piano, together with the Opera Orchestra.
It is 150 years since Grieg composed his pyrotechnic romantic-national piano concerto, often referred to as a “Norway in miniature”. The concerto forms part of the standard repertoire for most pianists.
The Opera Orchestra will follow Grieg’s famous concerto with a concert performance of what is probably Dmitri Shostakovich’s best known symphony: The Leningrad Symphony, or Symphony no. 7 in C Major.
