Brahms’ First Piano Concerto & Bartók
Streaming: Saturday, February 4, at 7:45pm EST
Brahms’ First Piano Concerto is vast in its scope, requiring dexterity, power, and grace from the soloist—the phenomenally versatile Garrick Ohlsson in these performances—as well as storms of expression from the orchestra. It is a concerto in which the orchestra and soloist are truly equal partners in storytelling. Two 20th Century classics, both with unusual instrumentation, open this concert. Music Director Laureate Leonard Slatkin conducts.
