Mendelssohn Piano Concerto

Benjamin Grosvenor, Scottish Chamber Orchestra & Maxim Emelyanychev
Date
Venue
Music Hall

Championed by Franz Liszt, and inspired by unrequited love, Mendelssohn’s sparkling First Piano Concerto is something of an overlooked masterpiece – but the electrifying British pianist Benjamin Grosvenor is just the musician to reveal its fiery virtuosity as well as its delicate, Chopin-like beauty.

Maxim Emelyanychev contrasts Mendelssohn’s brilliance with the turbulent drama and high emotions of Brahms’ gripping Tragic Overture, as well as Schumann’s most original Symphony. Celebrating his longed-for marriage to his beloved Clara Wieck, No.4 plunges you into deep drama and stormy emotions before its joyful, exhilarating conclusion.

Kindly supported by The Usher Family
