Diaghilev’s magic touches this concert too, in the form of Debussy’s commission for the Ballets Russes: Jeux.

Premiering within two weeks of The Rite of Spring, and likewise scored for a huge orchestra, this was Debussy’s final masterpiece for orchestra and was one of the most in mental scores of the 20th century - an inspiration to some of the greatest composers of the 20th and 21st centuries.

We also present two piano concertos which bookend the world of D-minor piano concertos. The first is one of Mozart’s most forward-looking concertos, with stormy passages and unresolved tensions that are rare for the Classical period.

Brahms’ monumental First Piano Concerto stands as a conclusion to the territory Mozart explored in his concerto. It’s a frankly emotional, fully Romantic work in every sense, and a tribute to the composer we feature in our next concert, Schumann, and to Schumann’s wife Clara, who championed the work.
