Andris Nelsons conductor
Hélène Grimaud piano
Brahms Piano Concerto No. 2
Brahms Symphony No. 4
Andris Nelsons’s Brahms series continues with the epic Second Piano Concerto, a symphonic powerhouse of scorching virtuosity that the composer mischievously described as ‘a set of little piano pieces’. The majestic Fourth Symphony was the last of his works he saw performed. Applause broke out at the end of every movement leaving the great man with tears streaming down his face.
Regrettably, there is no late entry point in the first half of this concert. Latecomers will only be admitted after the interval.
This concert is part of the Andris Nelsons: Brahms Cycle series
