Chopin’s piano works are unmatched in elegance and richness. The first two piano concertos reflect his delight with Bellini’s operas, particularly Norma, whose ornamentation inspired the adornments of Piano Concerto No. 1. Praised by audiences and critics alike for his lyrically beautiful approach, the young pianist Jan Lisiecki has fully mastered this virtuosic challenge.   

In part two of the concert, we hear Tchaikovsky’s beloved Pathétique, or Symphony No. 6, which has become a bit of a signature piece for Santtu-Matias Rouvali together with the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra. Our chief conductor showcases the full range of his skillset.
