Thomas Dausgaard conductor
Tonight's concert features two masterworks from the symphonic repertoire: it opens with Sibelius's single-movement Seventh Symphony, music in which conductor Thomas Dausgaard has been hailed by the New York Times for finding 'broody suppressed passion'. Tchaikovsky's mighty Fourth Symphony, the so-called 'Fate' symphony, concludes the concert, taking us on a journey from darkness to jubilation.
Between these two symphonies, the soloist in Schumann's romantic Piano Concerto is Georgian pianist Khatia Buniatishvili, a player praised by Martha Argerich as 'a young pianist of extraordinary talent'.
