“The greatest on disc?” asked Gramophone magazine when the Russian pianist Zlata Chochieva recorded Chopin’s Études. In this programme we get to hear Chochieva’s unrivalled way with Chopin in real life: as she joins Karl-Heinz Steffens in Chopin’s great love-song of a First Piano Concerto. It’s a bit of a theme: Schumann wrote his Second Symphony for his new wife Clara, and the score is studded with profoundly romantic gestures. But light needs shade, and the evening opens in the dark realm of Tuonela. Sibelius’s tone poem is one of those pieces that sinks its roots deep into your memory.
Prelude: 6.45pm in the Recital Room
Music journalist Jessica Duchen introduces Schumann’s Second Symphony.
