BEETHOVEN  Piano Concerto No. 5, “Emperor”
MUSSORGSKY  Pictures at an Exhibition

Massive in scale, symphonic in scope, Beethoven’s final piano concerto elevated the art form to dazzling new heights unsurpassed to this day. The extraordinary Olga Kern—an RPO audience favorite—performs this trailblazing titan of the repertoire, music packed with power, poetry, and sheer beauty. And, stroll from Baba Yaga’s hut to the majestic gates of Kiev in Mussorgsky’s beloved sonic showpiece.
