About This Event

In his bittersweet Piano Concerto, Britten set out to exploit the piano’s ‘enormous compass, percussive qualities and suitability for figuration’. The result is a true bravura piece whose razor-sharp edge conceals a gregarious smile.

Alongside the first London performance of Alberto Ginastera’s very Argentine view of the symphony orchestra comes the inexorable momentum of Schubert’s most invigorating symphony, his ‘Great’ Ninth.
