About this event
In their second Proms appearance this summer Vasily Petrenko and the Oslo Philharmonic explore the Romantic landscape and Schubertian echoes of Bruckner’s Fourth Symphony. Repeatedly revised by the composer during his lifetime, the symphony opens with a radiant sunrise.
Last heard playing Brahms with the Signum Quartet (PCM 7), Christian Ihle Hadland joins Petrenko and the orchestra for Beethoven’s Second Piano Concerto, built on the Mozartian model but already pointing to the bold gestures of the composer’s maturity.
Watch and listen to more piano concertos at the Proms.
