Sunday Classics: Brussels Philharmonic

Jean-Yves Thibaudet plays Liszt’s fiery Second Piano Concerto

3:00pm, Sunday 14 June 2020

Jean Yves Thibaudet

 

Eminent conductor Stéphane Denève is a firm favourite with Scottish audiences from his years as Music Director of the RSNO. But his new orchestra – the Brussels Philharmonic – is steadily becoming a cherished visitor too, following its several remarkable performances in Edinburgh.

This is undoubtedly Belgium’s greatest orchestra, scaling ever greater heights under Denève’s charismatic leadership, and they make a welcome return with a richly Romantic concert of vivid colours and potent emotions.

Brilliant French pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet is one of the starriest keyboard names around, and he’s soloist in Liszt’s fiery Piano Concerto No. 2, blending ever-changing moods of intimacy and flamboyance.

After the interval, Denève and his orchestra embark on the gripping drama of Mahler’s First Symphony – from the expectant shimmer of a spring morning, through a grotesque funeral procession, to the unbridled euphoria of its celebratory conclusion.

To open, the nostalgia and gentle melancholy of This Midnight Hour by superb British composer Anna Clyne.
