The Iceland Symphony Orchestra returns in the distinguished company of the British pianist Sir Stephen Hough. We begin our afternoon with music from one of Iceland’s most exciting composers followed by Rachmaninov’s deeply romantic, lyrical and beloved Piano Concerto No. 2.
The concert concludes with a performance of Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony, one of the most powerful, emotional and popular symphonies ever written.
‘Elevation and luminosity, the art of sonority, overwhelming virtuosity, the fingers of Stephen Hough are pure gold.’ Le Monde
