Stephen Hough, piano
Tabita Berglund, conductor

Piano concertos don’t come more popular or romantic than Rachmaninov’s Second, forever enshrined in the public’s imagination as the soundtrack to Brief Encounter. Stephen Hough is just the soloist to make it sound brand new, without losing a drop of its tightly wrought emotion. It’s framed here by two visions from the North of mythical and legendary tales. The Norwegian conductor Tabita Berglund opens the concert with her fellow countryman Johan Svendsen’s depiction of a love story between a princess and a knight. Jean Sibelius, meanwhile, found inspiration in the ancient myths of Finland’s Kalevala, portraying the life of the hero Lemminkäinen with a timeless intensity, most hauntingly in the famous Swan of Tuonela.
