BBC SSO 2018/19: Closing Night - Leonskaja Plays Brahms

City Halls, Glasgow

Season Ticket bookings available from 22/03/18 General Ticket bookings available 30/04/18 “Life-assertion” was how Béla Bartók described the dazzling finish of his Concerto for Orchestra – even though he might already have known that he wouldn’t live to complete it. Yes: it’s one of the 20th century’s most brilliant orchestral showpieces, drenched in the rhythms and colours of Bartók’s native Hungary. It’s also a stirring testimony to the human spirit, every bit as passionate – and as moving – as Brahms’s mighty First Piano Concerto. This is Brahms without the famous beard, the heartfelt music of a young genius who’d known personal tragedy and impossible love. And few living pianists can approach the great Elisabeth Leonskaja for power, poetry or simple humanity. Prelude: 6.45pm in the Recital Room Thomas Dausgaard looks back at the BBC SSO’s 2018/19 Season and introduces the final concert. Brahms Piano Concerto No.1 Bartók Concerto for Orchestra Elisabeth Leonskaja piano Thomas Dausgaard conductor Concert ends at approx. 9.20pm Please note this is a Friday night concert.
