Yannick Nézet-Séguin conducts Dvořák and BrahmsAfter a rapturous performance of his Slavonic Rhapsody with the Vienna Philharmonic in 1879, Dvořák promised the orchestra and its conductor Hans Richter a new symphony. When Dvořák played through the score at the piano a year later, Richter embraced him after each movement. Richter eventually conducted the Symphony here in London in 1882, a work whose unprecedented breadth and power and stream of unfolding, growing ideas made the composer’s name in this city.
One commentator has said of the piece that it ‘outstrips Brahms in its radiance and freshness’. There's only one way to find out: judge for yourself as Lisa Batiashvili and Maximilian Hornung perform the ‘endless love song between two instruments’ that is Brahms’s Double Concerto.
