MENDELSSOHN PIANO CONCERTO NO 1 WITH BENJAMIN GROSVENOR
Maxim Emelyanychev conductor
Benjamin Grosvenor piano
BRAHMS Tragic Overture
MENDELSSOHN Piano Concerto No 1
SCHUMANN Symphony No 4
Championed by Franz Liszt, and inspired by unrequited love, Mendelssohn’s sparkling First Piano Concerto is something of an overlooked masterpiece – but the electrifying British pianist Benjamin Grosvenor is just the musician to reveal its fiery virtuosity as well as its delicate, Chopin-like beauty.
Maxim Emelyanychev contrasts Mendelssohn’s brilliance with the turbulent drama and high emotions of Brahms’ gripping Tragic Overture, as well as Schumann’s most original Symphony. Celebrating his longed-for marriage to his beloved Clara Wieck, No 4 plunges you into deep drama and stormy emotions before its joyful, exhilarating conclusion.
Kindly supported by The Usher Family.
