Programme

Stravinsky The Firebird (complete)

- Intermission -

Brahms Piano Concerto No. 1 in D minor, Op. 15

Duration: 2 hrs (with 20-min intermission)

Four minutes of stormy Romantic anguish will grip you, before the pianist comes in with a vision of eloquent serenity. This is how Brahms’s First Piano Concerto begins, a commanding masterpiece that belies the young age at which he wrote it. Likewise, Stravinsky’s magical score for The Firebird ballet is a testament to his incredible mastery of the orchestra, even while in his 20s.

Pianist Dénes Várjon, 2020 recipient of Hungary’s highest award for the arts, the prestigious Kossuth Prize, is joined by his Hungarian compatriot, the up-and-coming conductor Gábor Káli.

“Stunning control and dynamic savvy… the most expressive playing”
