Emelyanychev conducts Brahms

Kozhukhin plays Beethoven

Mozart Overture, Don Giovanni
Beethoven Piano Concerto No. 5 (Emperor)
Brahms Symphony No. 1

Maxim Emelyanychev conductor
Denis Kozhukhin piano
London Philharmonic Orchestra

Brahms knew that Beethoven wasn’t an easy act to follow. ‘You don’t know what it’s like to hear his footsteps behind me’, he said while writing his First Symphony, but he needn’t have worried: with its tempestuous spirit and unforgettable final melody, critics quickly dubbed it ‘Beethoven’s Tenth’. Outsize emotions come as standard for conductor Maxim Emelyanychev, and for the great Russian pianist Denis Kozhukhin too. Together, they’ll make Beethoven’s majestic ‘Emperor’ Concerto the perfect counterpart for Brahms’s symphonic landmark. First, though, the overture to Mozart’s darkest opera sets the stage for an evening of high drama and raw passion.
