About the event


Symphony No. 3 in F major, Op. 90

Piano Concerto No. 2 in B flat major, Op. 83

Nelson Freire piano
Marios Papadopoulos conductor

Nobody plays Brahms like Nelson Freire, who makes his Festival debut in style at this standout concert featuring the full forces of the Oxford Philharmonic Orchestra under Marios Papadopoulos. The second of Brahms’s piano concertos was the biggest in scale and imposition since Beethoven’s ‘Emperor’ – a work marked out by maturity and skill but itself displaying heroism, virtuosity and all the depth of feeling for which this composer is adored. The composer’s fist-shaking Symphony No. 3 completes the programme at the Sheldonian Theatre.

The concert is scheduled to end at approximately 22:10.

Tickets: £45.00 £35.00 £25.00 £15.00
