For this extremely atmospheric programme, we will be joined by German star pianist Martin Helmchem. Despite the relative simplicity of the piano part, Mendelossohn’s Piano Concerto No. 2 is a popular work with both concertgoers and musicians. Like Mendelssohn, Brahms is a romantic icon. Whereas the former, however, is synonymous with boundless energy, the latter is mostly remembered for this mature work. He apparently wrote his Symphony No. 2 during a holiday in the south of Austria, drawing on the stunning landscapes for inspiration. The title ‘Pastorale’ is aptly chosen: the work opens on a cheerful note, sweeping you off to the country. In short, an evening featuring the best of German Romantic music, under the baton of consummate expert Philippe Herreweghe.
