Orchestre Philharmonique du Luxembourg
Philippe Herreweghe direction
Martin Helmchen piano
Johannes Brahms: Klavierkonzert N° 1
Johannes Brahms: Symphonie N° 4
The Orchestre Philharmonie du Luxembourg awaits a memorable event on May 17: Philippe Herreweghe completes his artistic residency as leader of the orchestra. The evening's soloist is the German pianist Martin Helmchen, whom ResMusica describes as one "who shows no interest in impressing by superficial virtuosity, but rather illuminates the innermost character of the work". He will be heard in Johannes Brahms' monumental First Piano Concerto, followed by the composer's Fourth Symphony. In addition, the composer will be the subject of a comparison of recordings presented by the musicologist Hélène Pierrakos at the Salle de Musique de Chambre in French at 18:45.
Ce concert sera enregistré par radio 100.7 et retransmis ultérieurement.
