Overview

Queensland Symphony Orchestra

Majestic. Grand. Dramatic. 

Conductor Johannes Fritzsch
Soloist Daniel de Borah, piano 

PROGRAM INCLUDES
Brahms Piano Concerto No.2 in B flat
R. Strauss Alpine Symphony (Eine Alpensinfonie)

Musicians sometimes refer to a challenging piece of music as a mountain to climb, but in the case of Richard Strauss’ majestic Alpine Symphony, the music literally is mountainous. When Strauss was a young boy he took part in a day-climb up the Alps, and that experience stayed with him until 1915 when he turned it into music. Alpine Symphony is an epic work featuring over 100 musicians. It takes you on an aural journey – a hike that starts at the first light of day, heading up to the peak of the mountain and then back down again. Once heard, it is never forgotten. 

The companion for this staggering creative masterpiece is Brahms’ Second Piano Concerto, itself a pinnacle of beauty for the pianist and orchestra to conquer together. Brisbane-based pianist Daniel de Borah will return to perform with Principal Conductor Johannes Fritzsch.
