Sir Simon Rattle will conduct Johannes Brahms' Piano Concerto No. 2 and Witold Lutosławski’s Symphony No. 3. Brahms' Piano Concerto No. 2 is full of surprises. At times, it seems like a symphony in which the orchestra contributes only a tone, but then allows the pianist, in this case Yefim Bronfam, to express his entire artistic talent as a soloist. Pianist Bronfman is the ideal choice for this composition, hailed by The New York Times as a virtuoso "defying comparison". And with Witold Lutosławski's 3rd Symphony from 1983, the orchestra and conductor have an opportunity to start performing a series of works by the polish composer.
