SIBELIUS Symphony No.4 BRAHMS Piano Concerto No.2 Rory Macdonald conductor Jeremy Denk piano
Sibelius drew inspiration from the landscape of his native Finland, and there’s definitely something elemental about his Fourth Symphony: music hewn out of bedrock and weathered by northern storms. Some say it’s his greatest work. It’s a powerful contrast to the sunlit romance and bubbling joy of Brahms’ magnificent Second Piano Concerto which fills the second half of our concert. Rory Macdonald makes a very welcome return and pianist Jeremy Denk finds something original (and surprising) in everything he touches as we open the new Aberdeen Concert Series.
