It took Johannes Brahms ten years and a shattered heart to write his First Symphony, and when it was finally complete, the papers dubbed it ?Beethoven's Tenth'. Yet when audiences heard the anguished heartbeats of its opening, they suspected they were in the presence of a genius on the Shakespeare scale ? and when they heard the magnificent tune with which it finishes, they knew it. Tonight, the Philharmonia and the acclaimed young Swiss conductor Philippe Jordan re-live that incredible adventure. Beethoven's stirring Leonora overture gives the call to action, and then Simon Trpceski takes centre stage in Liszt's Second Piano Concerto ? an outrageously difficult showpiece written by and for the greatest piano virtuoso of all time.Performers Simon Trpceski.
