The Ukrainian-German pianist Alexej Gorlatch has won many prizes at various international music competitions but is above all a gifted young pianist with a bright future. Today he performs the ‘imperial’ Fifth Piano Concerto by Ludwig van Beethoven, which together with the Fourth is one of his most important contributions to piano literature. Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony - popularly known as the ‘tatatata symphony’ due to its famous opening motif that evokes the power of fate - develops from the opening notes to the epic finale with an implacable logic. This is preceded in the programme by the commissioned work from the young Austrian composer Johannes Maria Staud, a fan of Béla Bartók.
