The Covent Garden Chamber Orchestra peforms Beethoven's Triple Concerto and Berlioz's Symphonie Fantastique, with Robert Max director/cello, Sophie Lockett violin and Danny Driver piano.
One of Beethoven’s less well known works – his amiable concerto for piano, violin, cello & orchestra – is followed by Berlioz’s tale of an artist and his unrequited love, with its dramatic themes of longing and despair. In 1830 this was a ground-breaking piece of programme music and orchestration.
The CGCO has long been part of the musical life of London, working with different conductors and artists at venues and festivals across the city and the South East.
Robert Max, soloist, conductor and recording artist, is principal cellist of the London Chamber Orchestra and cellist of the acclaimed Barbican Piano Trio.
Sophie Lockett appears regularly with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Royal Northern Sinfonia and the Hallé. She has performed with artists including Frank Ocean, Mcfly, Alison Moyet and John Barrowman.
Danny Driver’s recordings and performances have cemented his reputation as
one of Britain’s most respected and versatile pianists.
Performance ends at approx. 9.40pm.
