Celestial Grandeur concert

A celestial end to the season

London Firebird Orchestra’s 2016-17 season arrived at a fitting climax with Celestial Grandeur on 13 June and a packed out full house with hundreds in the audience in the beautiful setting of St Paul’s Covent Garden.

Firebird Conductor’s Circle member Michael Thrift’s exuberant direction of the orchestra brought music by three of the ‘classical greats’ to life with Mozart’s mischievous overture to Le Nozze di Figaro, Grieg’s much-loved and majestic Piano Concerto and Beethoven’s magnificent 5th Symphony.

The soloist in Grieg’s Piano Concerto was Firebird’s Artistic Director Marc Corbett-Weaver whose colourful delivery brought life and vigour to this popular and demanding work. This was the only concerto composed by Grieg which was to make his mark on the world at the age of 25.
