Pinchas Zukerman leads the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra in a program featuring some of Beethoven’s most gripping creations. Following the Overture to The Creatures of Prometheus, Zukerman plays and conducts the Violin Concerto, a work composed at the height of Beethoven’s so-called “heroic” period. The evening concludes with the sea-parting Fifth Symphony, one of Western music’s most spellbinding utterances.
