the music

Created with the composer at the piano and Berlioz on the podium, Franz Liszt's First Concerto combines breathtaking virtuosity with a new writing technique in four short movements joined seamlessly into a single large-scale structure. Like his distant colleague, the Anglo-Taiwanese artist Kit Armstrong is also a composer and virtuoso pianist.

Due to the global pandemic, the OSR announces a change to the programme for this concert.

Haydn's trumpet concerto, which had originally planned to be performed in December 2020, is added to the programme, with Stephen Jeandheur as soloist. Svetlin Roussev also takes centre stage for a performance of Beethoven's Romance No 2 for Violin. The programme takes on a French theme with Dimitry Rasul-Kareyev and a performance of Debussy's Rhapsodie pour clarinette et orchestre. Mahler remains for this evening concert, but now with a performance of Blumine, movement symphonique.

This concert will be aired live on Espace 2, and available to listen to on streaming on the Espace 2 website for 30 days following the concert. We await further direction from the Confederation regarding the possibility to welcome spectators to the Victoria Hall for this concert.
