SJE Arts 6th International Piano Series
London Firebird Orchestra
Marc Corbett-Weaver, piano
George Jackson, conductor
Following a sell-out début at the Church of St John-the-Evangelist in 2017, London Firebird Orchestra – one of London’s finest orchestra’s of the younger generation – returns with a programme of dramatic classics.
Mozart’s spellbindingly energetic Overture to The Magic Flute and Beethoven’s mighty Fifth Symphony are coupled with Tchaikovsky’s romantically, ever-popular, Piano Concerto no. 1. The orchestra is joined by pianist Marc Corbett-Weaver, recently described by Musical Opinion Magazine as ‘an interpretive artist fully immersed in the subtleties and considerable technical demands of each composer’s writing.’
Sponsored by the Morris-Venables Charitable Foundation
