One of the most popular eras of classical music is the music of the Romantic era – the late 19th century where composers felt free to make their work both intricate and emotive. The Piano Concerto of Norwegian Composer Edvard Grieg, features such a mix of thunderous piano and orchestra drama, side-by-side with moments of gorgeous beauty, that it has never dropped from its status as a favourite with audiences and pianists. Which is fantastic for us, because our pianist is returning Venezuelan-Argentine pianist Sergio Tiempo, whose effortless technique has won our hearts every time.  

The Grieg Concerto will be paired with Brahms Symphony No.1. This astonishing masterpiece is tightly constructed like a great piece of architecture and yet also contains many layers of deep emotion. Whether you want to listen to the brilliant way these pieces make the musicians interact with each other or you simply want to be swept away in a wave of powerful feelings, you can have it all in this concert.
