  1. Overture, from Genoveva Op 81 - Robert Schumann
  2. Concerto for Piano and Orchestra No 5 in E flat, 'Emperor' Op 73 - Ludwig van Beethoven
  3. Symphony No 2 in C Op 61 - Robert Schumann

A trio of rousing 19th century works is the bill of fare for this concert, with a Beethoven masterpiece sandwiched between two deeply romantic Schumann offerings. First, the overture to Schumann’s four-act opera, Genoveva, premiered in 1850 and sharing similarities to another great German medieval- themed work of the same decade, Wagner’s Lohengrin. Schumann also closes proceedings, with his uplifting and joyous second symphony. The evening’s centrepiece needs no introduction; the pathos and majesty of Beethoven’s Emperor Concerto places it in almost everybody’s top ten classical favourites.

Pre-concert talk (6.30pm to 7pm): featuring Jason Lai, Lauren Zhang and Orchestra of the Swan's Chief Executive, Debbie Jagla.
