“To perform his 1st concert, is to be directly absorbed into the drama of the young Brahms’ life; the 2nd Concerto offers a journey of intimate introspection.”

On 8th November, Boston Symphony Orchestra Music Director, Andris Nelsons, opens a two-week Brahms mini-festival traversing all four of the composer’s symphonies and his two piano concertos. Next week Hélène travels to Boston, joining Andris and the orchestra to perform Brahms’ Piano Concerto in D minor on 8th, 10th, 11th, 12th November, followed by performances of Brahms’ Piano Concerto No. 2 on 15th, 17th, 18th and 19th November. For more information about these performances, click here. Hélène and Andris recorded both Concertos with Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks and Wiener Philharmoniker on Deutsche Grammophon in 2013.
