MAXIM CONDUCTS BRAHMS: Thursday 23 February, 7.30pm at The Usher Hall
Bristling power, heartrending melodies, exquisite craftsmanship: not for nothing is Brahms commonly included alongside Bach and Beethoven in the triumvirate of German master composers. Join Maxim Emelyanychev for fresh perspectives on two of Brahms’ mightiest, most stirring and deeply moving masterpieces.
Violinist Aylen Pritchin has been making huge waves in the international scene with the purity and passion of his performances. A close colleague and collaborator with Emelyanychev, he brings a historically-informed slant to the graceful elegance and life-affirming lyricism of the Brahms Violin Concerto.
Emelyanychev closes the concert with Brahms Symphony No 1 – noble and majestic, but also mercurial and poetic. It took the composer decades to create, but it’s a work to match the achievements of Beethoven in a new age.
