A brilliant supernova with the Gothenburg Symphony, Herbert Blomstedt conductor and Maria João Pires piano.
Two stars collide and form a supernova in tonight’s concert. Herbert Blomstedt conducts and the masterful Maria João Pires is the soloist in Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 4. To conclude, we hear the symphony in which Brahms paid tribute to single life on the theme “free but happy”.
When Portuguese pianist Maria João Pires takes her place on stage, musical magic occurs. Here she tackles Beethoven’s poetic, dramatic and playful 4th Piano Concerto. We also hear Brahms’ nature-inspired and melodically expressive third symphony, all conducted by the legendary Herbert Blomstedt.
Maria João Pires has a long career behind her and is a star pianist in the true sense of the word. With her amazing touch and concentrated musicality, she can make a simple chord open up a whole universe of emotions. We hear that when she tackles Beethoven’s 4rth Piano Concerto. It begins with some quietly searching major chords, just a few measures, which Beethoven then develops into a magnificent musical masterpiece.
As a conclusion, we get Brahms’s Third Symphony. It opens with the motif F –Ab – F, which alludes to Brahms’ personal motto “Frei-Aber-Froh” – free but happy.
Most famous is the lovingly soft third movement in three-eighth time.
Thanks to a generous support from the Stena Foundation, we get to experience Maria João Pires in this concert.
