“The symphony is like the world – it should embrace everything” declared Gustav Mahler, and his First Symphony begins at the dawn of the world and ends in a blaze of triumph. It’s a glorious adventure for a great orchestra, and in the perfect acoustic of Symphony Hall, the Brussels Philharmonic will sound breathtaking – as should Liszt’s Second Piano Concerto. Written by the most brilliant pianist who ever lived, it’ll pose no problem at all for the great Jean-Yves Thibaudet!
