Music on the grand scale – heavenly, earthly and supernatural – sets the tone of this  terrific finale to the 2016/17 season. The soloist in Beethoven’s majestic 5th piano concerto, originally dedicated to Napoleon, will be performed by LFO artistic director Marc Corbett Weaver before an excerpt from Mozart’s mystical opera ‘The Magic Flute’ and his magnificent ‘Jupiter’ symphony.
