Schumann Konzertstück for Four Horns
Schumann Symphony No.4
Brahms Piano Concerto No. 1
Sir András Schiff conductor/ piano
Written 22 years apart, Brahms’ only piano concertos are snapshots of his life. The first is youthful, raw and expressive; the second is mature, structured and wiser. Both embody radical ideas of the 19th century, when revolution was in the air and artists joined political movements to overturn the old order.
