Haydn Symphony No.95
Brahms Piano Concerto No.2
Kees Bakels Conductor
Stephen Hough Piano
Haydn's Symphony No.95 is the only one of the twelve London symphonies in a minor key, opening in dramatic fashion with five hammer blows. On the completion of his mature Second Piano Concerto, Brahms announced his “ever so tiny piano concerto with an ever so tiny and dainty scherzo.” The music told another story however – Brahms had created arguably the most monumental piano concerto of the 19th century.
