Robin Ticciati’s third concert of the Season begins with Bach’s Third Orchestral Suite, a work famed for its ‘Air on the G String’. It is followed by a rarity – Dvořák’s G minor Piano Concerto. Performed by Sir András Schiff, one of the most thoughtful pianists of our age, this virtuosic masterpiece will doubtless intrigue and delight. The programme is completed by Brahms’ Third Symphony, sometimes described as his ‘Eroica’. Most critics have stressed the Symphony’s heroic qualities, whether or not the allusion to Beethoven’s Third was intended; Dvořák, on the other hand, was captivated most by the work’s sheer beauty.
