Beethoven Overture 'Egmont'
Dvořák Symphony No 7
Brahms Piano Concerto No 1
François Leleux, conductor
Javier Perianes, piano
To open the 2019-20 Perth Concert Series, the Scottish Chamber Orchestra welcomes the 2019 International Classical Music Awards 'Artist of the Year' Javier Perianes, performing one of the great pillars of the Romantic repertoire, Brahms' first piano concerto. A huge clap of D minor thunder arrests your attention from the outset, before you are transported into a world of dance.
Dvořák’s tempestuous seventh symphony owes stylistic debt to his great friend Brahms and is boldly described by Classic FM as 'Dvořák's greatest symphony'. Conductor François Leleux is a remarkable musician who knows just how to draw wonderful, sensitive playing from the Orchestra.
