Elbphilharmonie, Hamburg


  • Brahms Piano Concerto No. 1
  • Brahms Symphony No. 1


  • Edward Gardner conductor
  • Hélène Grimaud piano

No repertoire is quite as fitting as a night of Brahms, the great Hamburg master, for our opening concert in the city's magnificent Elbphilharmonie. 

Johannes Brahms long felt he composed in the shadow of Beethoven’s success and spent the best years of his youth perfecting his First Symphony. The resulting work was certainly worth the 21 year wait: an epic emotional autobiography that begins with the pounding of a heart in torment and ends with a hymn of triumph – and a tune you’ll never forget.

Brahms’s First Piano Concerto is equally as emotive, in turns anguished, tranquil, and defiant, and is performed by the LPO’s long-standing friend, Hélène Grimaud.
