The FIMA 2017 – Festival Internacional de Música do Algarve presents “Beethoven” with the Orquestra Clássica do Sul directed by Jean-Bernard Pommier, who also performs as piano soloist.
In this concert we will listen to the overture “Creatures of Prometheus”, the "Concerto for Piano and Orchestra no. 1" and the "Symphony No. 2" by Beethoven, pieces that date from the most classical period of the composer, still under strong influence of his Viennese predecessors masters (Haydn and Mozart), but in which the " Beethovenian trait" is already very present with an innovative orchestral view that is no longer satisfied with mere formal skills.
The French pianist Jean-Bernard Pommier has an extensive international career, currently assuming residence in the Bulgarian National Philharmonic, in Sofia, where he performs as a conductor, soloist, recitalist and chamber music interpreter.
