The concert will be finished by approximately 9.25pm.

In this joyful work, Brahms portrays colourful variations on the St Anthony Chorale. A homage which pays tribute to the purity and grace of Haydn’s Classical style whilst blending the warmth of feeling and sound favoured by the composer.

Mozart’s memorably lyrical Piano Concerto No 22 was written during the ‘Figaro winter’. The first to feature his favourite wind-instrument, the clarinet dominates the score alongside a complex part for piano, performed here by Pavel Kolesnikov, winner of the 2014 Honens Competition.

Nielsen’s astonishing fifth symphony then darkens the mood. Completed two years after the end of the Great War, the composer saw the work as ‘the battle between evil and good’. A militaristic sidedrum threatens to derail the orchestra before a dawn of hope emerges and eventually triumphs. One of the great symphonies, presented here under the baton of Johannes Debus (Music Director, Canadian Opera).
