This concert features romantic masterworks from four of the most influential composers of the 19th and early 20th centuries. At the heart of the concert is Schumann’s glorious Piano Concerto in A minor, performed by internationally acclaimed pianist Nicola Meecham. Also on the programme is Walk to the Paradise Garden by Frederick Delius, a masterpiece in orchestration, with its intense outpouring of emotion, and Mahler’s Adagietto from his Symphony No 5. The concert concludes with the intensely passionate and at times darkly dramatic Symphony No 4 by Brahms.
