Eminentconductor Stéphane Denève is a firm favourite with Scottish audiences from hisyears as Music Director of the RSNO. But his new orchestra – the BrusselsPhilharmonic – is steadily becoming a cherished visitor too, following itsseveral remarkable performances in Edinburgh.
This isundoubtedly Belgium’s greatest orchestra, scaling ever greater heights underDenève’s charismatic leadership, and they make a welcome return with a richlyRomantic concert of vivid colours and potent emotions.
BrilliantFrench pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet is one of the starriest keyboard namesaround, and he’s soloist in Liszt’s fiery Piano Concerto No. 2, blending ever-changingmoods of intimacy and flamboyance.
After theinterval, Denève and his orchestra embark on the gripping drama of Mahler’sFirst Symphony – from the expectant shimmer of a spring morning, through agrotesque funeral procession, to the unbridled euphoria of its celebratoryconclusion.
