Beethoven's Emperor

Concert Hall, QPAC

Beethoven's Emperor

The year of Beethoven ends with his mighty ‘Emperor’ Concerto, one of the most stirring and moving musical experiences for piano and orchestra.

It will be performed by Australian pianist Daniel de Borah, described by The Canberra Times as ‘without doubt one of the finest pianists in the country.’ To finish our final concert of 2020, the Orchestra takes on the triumphant and glorious Pines of Rome composed by one of the most recorded composers of the twentieth century, Ottorino Respighi.  

#QPAC's COVID Safe Plan

Theatre seating for this event has been updated in line with COVID-19 physical distancing requirements. You will need to provide contact details of all attendees, where prompted during the booking process.

Wearing a mask is recommended in situations where you may not be able to maintain physical distancing such as entering and exiting theatres or moving through areas where lots of people are gathered. Keep a mask with you, so that if you get into one of those situations, you have some added protection.
