Wagner Prelude to Act I from Lohengrin
Anna Thorvaldsdottir Metacosmos
Brahms Piano Concerto No1
Eva Ollikainen Conductor
Sunwook Kim Piano
Royal Scottish National Orchestra
Part of Perth Concert Series
Brahms never talked about his love life, but he didn’t need to: his youthful First Piano Concerto erupts like a volcano of barely-controlled passion. Every performance is an occasion, and in the hands of the phenomenal Sunwook Kim, it’ll blaze brighter than ever. Conductor Eva Ollikainen sets the scene with northern landscapes from Iceland and Finland - places where natural beauty conceals elemental forces. Warning: it gets powerful.
