Angelich plays Brahms

In his opera The Sacrifice, James MacMillan tells the story of tribal conflict and disunity that ends in hope and reconciliation. The interludes together form a separate and equally haunting suite. Strauss also turned to old folklore, bringing to life the happy knave Till Eulenspiegel in a symphonic tone poem.

In 1858, Johannes Brahms wrote his first piano concerto. Against all expectations, the work met with a rather cool reception. It was not until twenty years later, when he was 44, did the composer attempt a second one: the Piano Concerto No. 2, opus 83. This time he was confident that ‘Despite everything, the first concerto will please, and the second one will sound very different’. At the high point of his career, Brahms achieved for the first time a perfect mix of inspiration and technique – at last, he felt he was a worthy composer.
