Schumann Symphony No. 3
Brahms Piano Concerto No. 2

Sir András Schiff piano/ conductor

One of the world’s best pianists, Sir András Schiff, plays some of world’s best piano music.

Written 22 years apart, Brahams’ only piano concertos are snapshots of his life. The first is youthful, raw and expressive; the second is mature, structured and wiser. Both embody radical ideas of the 19th century, when revolution was in the air and artists joined political movements to overturn the old order.

The OAE performs these blockbuster piano concertos over two nights with Sir András Schiff, an extraordinary pianist and one of the world’s finest musicians. To complement the piano concertos, he also conducts music by Brahms’ mentor and inspiration, Robert Schumann, exploring the complex interplay between political turmoil and personal anguish in composer’s life.
