Brahms: Piano Concerto No. 2
Renowned Irish pianist Barry Douglas, a favourite with Mumbai audiences, performs Brahms’ Piano Concerto No. 2, conducted by Alexander Lazarev. One of the giants of the Romantic period, Brahms was a master of piano writing. His second piano concerto manages to combine the widest extremes—it is majestic, yet possesses a lightness of touch. It is a virtuosic showpiece for the soloist, yet it is highly introspective at the same time.
This performance was recorded live at the Jamshed Bhabha Theatre, NCPA, on September 22, 2019.
