BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra Chopin Piano Concerto No. 2
City Halls : Grand Hall
Arrivals and departures: the teenage Chopin wrote his Second Piano Concerto just months before leaving Poland forever, yet its music is already drenched in the poetry that would make him famous. Anton Bruckner, meanwhile, hoped that his Second Symphony would be his passport into the Viennese musical elite – only to have it dismissed as “unplayable” by the Vienna Philharmonic. Hindsight offers perspective: tonight, former Chopin Competition winner Garrick Ohlsson brings a lifetime’s devotion to bear on this latest instalment in our Muzyka Polska series, while Thomas Dausgaard has won critical acclaim for his fresh approach to Bruckner’s profoundly Romantic early symphony.
