Program
Haydn  Symphony No. 100 in G major, “Military”
Brahms  Piano Concerto No. 2, in Bb major, Op. 83

There is no better music to lighten up a dark winter day than Johannes Brahms’ brilliant Second Piano Concerto, and no better artist to bring this masterpiece to life than pianist Garrick Ohlsson. A distant opening horn call invites us to enter a mysterious, enchanted world. Virtuosity and profound depth of feeling are required in equal measure in this concerto, traversing a passionate scherzo, an intimate dialogue between cello and piano, and a concluding rondo full of gypsy swagger. Haydn’s 100th symphony begins with a wistful sigh of woodwinds, but soon gives way to music of joy and exuberance, ending in a literal crash of cymbals brilliant enough to illuminate even the gloomiest of winter days.
