Program

The ballet The Miraculous Mandarin caused a huge scandal when it premiered in Cologne in 1926, but Bartok's music continued to be played in the concert halls, as had Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring a few years earlier. At the age of 25, Brahms began composing his first concerto for piano and orchestra. He created a passionate and emotional work, full of gratitude to the Schumann family, who welcomed him into their home, and bursting with virtuosity, as one would expect from a such a highly talented young man.
