Overview

Mahler (orch. Matthews) - Nicht zu schnell
Shostakovich - Piano Concerto No.2
Sibelius - Symphony No.1
 
Conductor:  Mark Wigglesworth

Piano: Steven Osborne

Colin Matthews’ reworking of the first movement of Mahler’s Piano Quartet transformed it into a full-blooded Mahlerian orchestral work with savagely seething climaxes. Shostakovich’s Second Piano Concerto stands miles apart from many of his other works in its sense of freedom and abandon. It is a gloriously free, wistful creation – an unrestrained delight from start to finish, particularly in the famous, soulful adagio, which guarantees the whole work’s enduring popularity. Sibelius’ dramatic and austere First Symphony is significant in that never before had a work of such stature emerged from Northern Europe, unveiling the previously unheard character of Nordic music, sounding both ‘old’ and ‘new’ at the same time.
 
All BSO concerts this autumn will be available to watch in the Concert Hall or online.
