Symphony No. 2 in D major, Op. 73

Evgeny Kissin piano

Marios Papadopoulos conductor

Hannah Schneider conductor*

A new dawn breaks with the first concert of our new season, as we inaugurate our Side-by-Side scheme for outstanding young instrumentalists (in a performance under the Orchestra’s Assistant Conductor, Hannah Schneider) and collaborate for the first time with a pianist who can be safely described as iconic. Evgeny Kissin has demonstrated his unparalleled way with the poetry, drama, virtuosity and sensitivity of Liszt’s Piano Concerto No. 2, which here comes before Marios Papadopoulos’s interpretation of Brahms’s second symphony whose gloom-tinged idyll leads to a glorious fanfare.

Pre-concert Talk 18:30
