Maria João Pires and Sir John Eliot Gardiner perform Schumann's Piano Concerto London Symphony Orchestra

About

Celebrated by Gramophone as the "perfect collaboration", Sir John Eliot Gardiner, the London Symphony Orchestra, and Maria João Pires offer an intense reading of Schumann's Piano Concerto. Together they reveal rhythmic details and melodies often lost in more orthodox interpretations, and the result is fascinating! The monumental piano concerto is framed by two works inspired by Felix Mendelssohn’s first trip to the British Isles: The Hebrides and the "Scottish" Symphony. The choir director turned early music specialist Sir John Eliot Gardiner is recognized today as an authority in repertoires ranging from Monteverdi’s sacred music to Bach’s cantatas to Mozart’s operas right through to Beethoven’s, Schubert’s, and Brahms’s choral and symphonic works, and with this concert he opens another brilliant chapter in his career.
