Idyllic Visions - Master Series 7

Mark Wigglesworth - Conductor
Stephen Hough - Piano

Vaughan Williams - Symphony No.5
Brahms - Piano Concerto No.2

Some people are gifted with a profound inner peace, an assurance that all shall be well, however dark and dreadful the world around them becomes.

 

During World War II, Ralph Vaughan Williams wrote a symphony of singular calm and solace. Close your eyes and be carried by the slow, steady chords of the heavenly Romanza – here you may rest deeply.

 

A horn solo, soft but sure, awakens Brahms’ Second Piano Concerto. It’s symphonic in scope, with four movements and a notoriously challenging piano part, but Stephen Hough, with an inner calm of his own, reveals it as an intimate dialogue between soloist and orchestra: “a search for common ground where, as in life, the sun can shine brightest... and warmest.”

 

Presenting Partner

 


 

The Mingling Room

 

FREE. One hour prior to the concerts in the Meeting Hall (located just behind the Adelaide Town Hall). There’ll be a bar so after the pre-concert presentation, you can linger, buy a drink and discuss the music with new and old friends before enjoying the concert.

 

In tonight’s conversation, educator and conductor Graham Abbott unpacks the music of Vaughan Williams and Brahms with polymath and concert pianist Stephen Hough.
