BRAHMS Tragic Overture
CHOPIN Piano Concerto No.2
BEETHOVEN Symphony No.6, 'Pastoral'
French conductor Fabien Gabel makes his Northampton début to present a programme featuring three of the Romantic era's most distinguished composers. Brahms' darkly powerful Tragic Overture introduces Chopin's Piano Concerto No.2. Performed by Janina Fialkowska, a pianist renowned for her brilliant interpretations of the Romantic repertoire, it is a work of variety, containing lyrical melodies, elaborate ornamentation and Polish folk music influences.
Finally, we travel to the countryside to revel in the glorious musical landscape of Beethoven's 'Pastoral' Symphony, its popular 'storm' movement surrounded by music of sunny grace and rustic charm.
