Tickets: 32.50-7.50 €


Karol Szymanowski: Konserttialkusoitto op. 12
Sergei Prokofjev: Pianokonsertto nro 2
Pjotr Iljitš Tšaikovski: Sinfonia nro 3 "Puolalainen"

Once referred to as “a Babel of insane sounds”, Sergei Prokofiev’s 2nd piano concerto is one of the most demanding masterpieces of its kind. Its steely powers maintain their grip from the sensitive introduction through the roughly 600 notes per second middle part all the way to the final climax. Boris Giltburg, winner of the prestigious Queen Elisabeth Piano Competition in 2013, has a real beast to tame!
