Win two tickets to see Jayson Gillham perform Beethoven with a luxurious overnight stay at Ockenden Manor
We’re giving you the chance to experience Beethoven's Coriolan Overture, Piano Concerto No.3 and Symphony No.4, performed by Jayson Gillham and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, with a luxury night’s stay at the Ockenden Manor – a member of the prestigious Pride of Britain Hotel group.
The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra’s Principal Associate Conductor leads an all-Beethoven programme, opening with Beethoven’s fiery and dramatic Coriolan Overture and ending with his radiant Symphony No.4.
From the fiery clashes of the opening to the singing, poetic phrases of the central movement, Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 3 encapsulates the many sides of this ingenious composer’s personality. Performed here by Jayson Gillham, who ‘plays Beethoven with a sort of ‘glow’ (Sir Mark Elder), Beethoven’s masterpiece allows the pianist to show off his instrument as every bit as powerful and expressive as the entire orchestra around it.
