Cédric Tiberghien has had to withdraw from this concert due to illness, and will be replaced by Kirill Gerstein.
Serious fun. Brahms’s Second Concerto is one of the peaks of the piano repertoire, as big as a symphony and breathtakingly difficult. Yet from dreamy opening to sparkling finish, every note radiates pure sunshine – and soloist Cédric Tiberghien knows exactly how to make it sing. It’s the joyous climax to a concert that begins with Max Reger’s wonderfully romantic musical paintings from 1913, and Schubert’s bubbly Third Symphony: personal favourites, dished up with love by the CBSO’s popular principal guest conductor.
The concert on 10 April will be followed by a Members’ Afternoon Tea with Edward Gardner as guest speaker. For further information contact Claire Watts on 0121 616 6514.
