Esa-Pekka Salonen conductor
David Fray piano
Beethoven Piano Concerto No. 2
Mahler Symphony No. 1
A magical spring dawn — or the creation of the universe itself? One thing’s for sure: the opening of Mahler’s First Symphony is the start of a thrilling journey, and from that extraordinary beginning right through to the roof-raising finish, there’s no more dynamic guide than the great Esa-Pekka Salonen — the Philharmonia’s Principal Conductor & Artistic Advisor, and one of the finest living Mahler interpreters in the world today. Beethoven’s wittiest piano concerto should make a delightful complement.
This concert is part of the The Salonen Series series
