Sir Stephen Hough piano
Marios Papadopoulos conductor
One of the great pianists of our time brings us one of the great piano concertos of all time. Sir Stephen Hough, whose recording of the Rachmaninov concerto was a Sunday Times Record of the Year, joins Marios Papadopoulos to take on the Everest of the piano literature – the Russian composer’s ardent and immense Piano Concerto No. 3. Before it, a work both menacing and mellifluent, the exquisite picture of radiant beauty and dark foreboding that is Brahms’s Symphony No. 3. It will give the Oxford Philharmonic Orchestra plenty of opportunity to display both its outstanding soloists and its warm, embracing sound.
