Conductor Giordano Bellincampi
Piano Andrea Lam
Rossini The Thieving Magpie: Overture
Mozart Piano Concerto No.17 in G major
Brahms Symphony No.4
For Brahms, the genre of the symphony was the centre of his artistic thought, and when he wrote his fourth and final one, he poured into it everything he knew from a lifetime in music. Now stormy, now mysterious, now high-spirited: look forward to a revelatory performance in the hands of Giordano Bellincampi.
Rossini’s opera about a larcenous bird opens with this deliciously sparkling overture. Sparkle aplenty in Mozart’s concerto too (particularly with the marvellous Australian pianist Andrea Lam), but at its heart this is a deeply felt romance.
