CONCLUSION OF BEETHOVEN CYCLE WITH RADU LUPU IN HELSINKI


 

26 April

The final concert of the Beethoven cycle with Radu Lupu and the Finnish Chamber Orchestra takes place on 26 April at the Helsinki Music Centre.

This concert marks the end of a cycle of Beethoven’s piano concertos, all performed by Lupu and the Finnish Chamber Orchestra; a series of concerts performed over the last two years at the Helsinki Music Centre. This is the first cycle of its kind in the Helsinki concert hall. The concerts always consist of a full programme of Beethoven, and the concert on Saturday 26 April will feature the 5th piano concerto and the 7th symphony.

“This cycle has ensured a continuity for the Finnish Chamber Orchestra at the Music Centre”, remarks Jukka-Pekka. “Playing these concerts with Radu Lupu has been a very special musical experience, and it’s a shame that Beethoven only wrote five piano concertos”.
