Jakub Hrůša conductor
Piotr Anderszewski piano
Beethoven Piano Concerto No. 1
Mahler Symphony No. 5
In the darkness a trumpet sounds, and Gustav Mahler launches into his tempestuous Fifth Symphony. From tragedy to triumph, it’s an epic struggle; one that embraces folksongs, horn calls and above all, the ravishing Adagietto - Mahler’s unforgettable musical love letter to his young wife. This is music that’s larger than life, so what better way to launch the concert than with the superb Polish pianist Piotr Anderszewski, and the pure sunshine of Beethoven’s youthful piano concerto?
This concert is part of the Mahler Symphonies series
