STRAVINSKY Symphonies of Wind Instruments (1947)
SCHUBERT Symphony No 4 ‘Tragic’
BRAHMS Piano Concerto No 1
Douglas Boyd Conductor
John Lill Piano
John Lill may be one of Britain’s best-loved pianists, but he hasn’t let it mellow him! Critics have hailed his “fiercely passionate and romantic temperament”: and that’s exactly what’s needed for Brahms’ grand, tempestuous heartbreaker of a First Piano Concerto. Under the inspirational Douglas Boyd, this will be terrific – and a spectacular contrast to Stravinsky’s ritualistic Symphonies of Wind Instruments and Schubert’s dramatic Fourth Symphony.
