Pianists tend to consider Brahms’s Piano Concerto No. 2 one of the hardest in the piano repertoire, especially because the orchestra does not, as usual, just accompany the piano, but actually co-creates the emotional level of the whole work, enforcing its symphonic character. On the piano will perform Eugen Indjic, American pianist of Russian and Serbian heritage, laureate of 4th prize in the 8th Fryderyk Chopin International Piano Competition in Warsaw and 2nd prize in the Artur Rubinstein International Piano Master Competition. Symphony No. 2 in D major is one of the greatest and most monumental works of Sibelius. Just like his other compositions it’s dark, gloomy and soul-stirring with the impressions of the North climate and landscape. The orchestra will be led by Tomasz Bugaj, laureate of several international awards.
