Sir Stephen Hough plays Brahms 2
Featuring Igor Yuzefovich – leader
re:Sound

Resound welcomes Igor Yuzefovich as guest concertmaster in this concert of monumental works with ironic descriptions. Bartok’s Divertimento, although inspired by the Classical divertimento form, teems with dark undertones, rich harmonies and his quintessential sense of rhythmic drive.

Featuring Sir Stephen Hough leading the orchestra from the piano, Brahms’ Second Piano Concerto, which he described to Clara Schumann as ‘very small piano concerto with a very small and pretty scherzo’, was in actual fact the largest piano concerto written at that time in terms of complexity and length.

Pre-Concert Chat – 7.30pm

Sir Stephen will be sharing his thoughts about Brahms’ Second Piano Concerto, working with a relatively small orchestra and performing without a conductor.
All ticket holders are welcome to this exclusive 20 minute pre-concert chat, hosted by Mr Mervin Beng, Chairman of Resound Collective Limited.

PROGRAMME
Bela Bartók
Divertimento for String Orchestra Sz.113

Johannes Brahms
Piano Concerto No. 2 in B-flat Major, Op. 83
