Gala Concert - 50th Anniversary

Eric Lu

Piano: Eric Lu

Conductor: Ian Brown

Brahms: Academic Festival Overture
Mozart: Piano Concerto No. 20 K466
Dvořák: Symphony No. 9 'From the New World'

For our 21st Hexagon concert, we are very excited to welcome Eric Lu, winner of the 2018 Leeds International Piano Competition at the age of 20, and soloist in this year’s BBC Proms. Eric will perform Mozart’s dark and dramatic Piano Concerto No 20 in D minor. The second movement is a tender Romance used to striking effect in the soundtrack of Amadeus. Dvořák’s most famous Symphony No 9, ‘From the New World’, influenced by indigenous American folk tunes, has an apparently inexhaustible flow of melodies with a justly celebrated slow movement at its heart. HSO last played this symphony at it first Hexagon concert in 1999.
