BRAHMS Tragic Overture
CHOPIN Piano Concerto No.2
BEETHOVEN Symphony No.6, ‘Pastoral’
Brahms’ Tragic Overture provides a wonderfully emotional and dramatic introduction to the evening. Janina Fialkowska is one of the world’s finest Chopin interpreters; the perfect exponent for Chopin’s Piano Concerto No.2, full of spirited Polish folk music and with a dazzling piano score. Dramatic writing also takes centre stage in Beethoven’s ‘Pastoral’ Symphony, its turbulent ‘Storm’ movement surrounded by music of sunny grace and rustic charm, a fitting finale to an extraordinary concert.
