Called to action by a soaring horn melody, the piano is hero in Brahms’s noble second piano concerto. This concerto is virtually a symphony with piano. Composer Johannes Brahms had a gift for creating moments of tranquil intimacy within his most expansive works, and Irish pianist Barry Douglas has been exploring the complete solo piano music of Brahms in a series of acclaimed benchmark recordings: ‘this is indeed Brahms playing of the utmost integrity and authority’ (International Record Review). The remarkable unbroken arc of Sibelius’s Seventh Symphony accelerates across an enigmatic landscape of emotion. Coiled tight within it is all the drama and variety of much bigger works – serene, violent and passionate. It is Sibelius’ final word: a ‘profession of faith’. Aeolian Caprices by Australian composer Richard Mills is an orchestral firework of glittering colour.
