Brahms Piano Concerto No.2

About this performance

It took Brahms three years to write this mammoth work for piano and orchestra – the longest piano concerto of the romantic era!

The longer and more ambitious his works became, the more he quirkily referred to them in diminutive terms, describing this gargantuan work as ‘a very small piano concerto’.

Currently head of Chamber Music at the Queensland Conservatorium, Daniel de Borah embarks on this journey of physical and musical endurance, guiding us through seamless and ever-surprising passages of tempestuousness, tenderness, yearning, and elegance.

Duration: approx. 1 hour, no interval
