Two concertos for the price of one! Pianist Kirill Gerstein has compiled a symmetrical concert programme in which Webern’s short tonal aphorisms cleanse the musical taste buds in preparation for the flow of Brahms’s concertos. John Storgårds begins the concert by switching his baton for the violin for Webern’s Four Pieces for Violin and Piano, Opus 7.
Four Pieces for violin and piano op. 7
Piano Concerto No. 1
Five pieces for Orchestra op. 10
Piano Concerto No. 2
