On the occasion of the 250th birthday anniversary of Ludwig van Beethoven, the CySO will embark on a complete concerts cycle throughout 2020, devoted to the great composer. CySO inaugurates the Beethoven Cycle with the unsurpassed artistry of the internationally distinguished pianist Cyprien Katsaris as he honours Beethoven’s most classical piano concerto, his first one. Also classical in form but romantic in its musical language, Symphony no. 1 carries traces of Beethoven’s mature style.
The programme is enriched delightfully by an imaginative dialogue between the flute and the orchestra, a piece by Constantin Papageorgio in first performance.
