Sir Andrew Davis conductor
Stephen Hough piano


Our Artist in Focus, Stephen Hough, returns to perform Brahmsís tumultuous first Piano Concerto with Sir Andrew Davis. Hough has written of the Ďburst of utter, natural, divine geniusí that propels this concerto, Ďitís flame flares with such intensity, and such promise of more to come, that I find myself overwhelmed by ití. As part of our Tippett retrospective, we come to his fourth and final symphony, which follows a life-cycle from birth to death in a single movement, complete with breathing effects; an astonishing example of the imaginative vitality of the composerís late years. Jonathan Lloyd, whose own fourth symphony was written for the BBC SO, makes a welcome return with a new work for strings.
