- Brahms Piano Concerto No. 1
- Stravinsky Petrushka (1947 revised version)
- Edward Gardner conductor
- Hélène Grimaud piano
Principle Conductor Edward Gardner is joined by pianist Hélène Grimaud for a programme of Brahms and Stravinsky at Düsseldorf's Tonhalle.
At a Shrovetide fair in old Russia, crowds bustle and laugh as they watch the puppets dance, love, fight and die. None of it really matters; they’re just toys – aren’t they? Stravinsky’s Petrushka astonished audiences in 1911, and 112 years on its colours are as bright (and its emotions as strong) as ever.
Brahms’s First Piano Concerto is equally as evocative, in turns anguished, tranquil, and defiant, and is expertly performed by the LPO’s long-standing friend, Hélène Grimaud.
