Of Knights & Legends - Great Classics 3
Nicholas Carter - Conductor
Jean-Efflam Bavouzet - Piano
Beethoven - Piano Concerto No 4
Bruckner - Symphony No 4 'Romantic'
Close your eyes, breathe deeply and let music calm the storms of life. In our final chapter of Great Classics, it’s the virtues of patience and quietude that ensure a happy ending.
Jean-Efflam Bavouzet knows that he must be “an architect, a poet and a virtuoso” in order to bring out the full character of Beethoven’s intimate Fourth Piano Concerto. As the piano and orchestra exchange remarks, it’s like listening to a relationship developing over time. When the orchestra gets grumpy in the second movement, the piano speaks softly in reply, and gradually the two characters are brought closer together in time for the happy finale.
Bruckner’s Fourth Symphony takes us outdoors into an idyllic world of medieval romance and chivalry. Stories of knights and damsels play out on the music’s surface, and underneath it all we feel a solid foundation, constant and dependable.
FREE for ticket holders.
Join us for Classical Conversations one hour prior to the performance in the Adelaide Town Hall auditorium.
