Brahms never talked about his love life, but he didn’t need to: his youthful First Piano Concerto erupts like a volcano of barely-controlled passion. Every performance is an occasion, and in the hands of the phenomenal Sunwook Kim, it’ll blaze brighter than ever. Conductor Jonathan Stockhammer sets the scene with northern landscapes from Iceland and Finland – places where natural beauty conceals elemental forces. Warning: it gets powerful.

Please note, due to unforeseen circumstances, conductor Eva Ollikainen will no longer be joining us. We are grateful to conductor Jonathan Stockhammer for stepping in.
