In 2020 Nathan was supposed to be performing a cycle of all five Beethoven Piano Concertos with the Prometheus Orchestra conducted by Edmond Fivet in Aldeburgh. Fortunately the first four were performed before the Covid lockdown struck – over a single weekend in February 2020 – sadly, the fifth ‘Emperor’ Concerto, due to be performed in October 2020 at Snape Maltings, has been postponed to 2021.
Clips from the concerts can be viewed on the media page here.
Power, vulnerability and a sense of spontaneous invention are essential for great Beethoven performances and Nathan had all of these, combined in something that was beautiful, elegant, heartfelt and thrilling… It was a total joy to hear Nathan’s subtle, touching and yet thoroughly grand performance.
