New beginnings

Nézet-Séguin conducts Brahms and Strauss

7:30 PM, ​ Royal Festival Hall, London

Brahms Piano Concerto No. 2
Schubert Symphony No. 8 (Unfinished)
R Strauss Don Juan

Yannick Nézet-Séguin conductor
Lars Vogt piano
London Philharmonic Orchestra

Brahms’s first Piano Concerto spoke of the love and yearning of a young man. When he came to write his second 22 years later, Brahms was a changed being. Gone was any sense of confident swagger – the sort that propels Strauss’s Don Juan forward. In its place was a feeling of pregnant expectation more akin to that which opens Schubert’s Unfinished Symphony. Lars Vogt joins Yannick Nézet-Séguin for a performance of Brahms’s strangely intimate yet wholly magisterial concerto – for some, his ultimate musical summation of human civilisation.
