Brahms and Beethoven


  • Otto Chain from the Third symphony: Adagio
  • Ludwig van Beethoven Third piano concerto
  • Johannes Brahms Fourth Symphony

Conductor Edo de Waart will not be conducting this concert. We are hard at work looking for a suitable replacement. As soon as we know more about this we will inform ticket buyers.

This AVROTROS Friday Concert promises a truly irresistible combination. Brahms Fourth Symphony meets Beethoven's Third Piano Concerto in a one-off concert evening. The top of the Dutch classical-music scene tackles this immortal music: conductor Edo de Waart and pianist Ronald Brautigam.

With simple musical building blocks, such as a heavenly rising and falling interval, Brahms creates a monumental symphonic cathedral. A spiritual musical domain where light and shadow, birth and death, love and life's doubts seek a place. As never before, Brahms plays and varies with motifs and melodic moments. A grandiose symphonic journey for which an exceptionally experienced conductor such as Edo de Waart is happy to act as a guide.

In addition to this tension-filled interpretation of Brahms' last symphony, another invincible warhorse from the piano repertoire will be heard this concert evening. Beethoven's Third Piano Concerto is a hot-blooded, thoroughly romantic keyboard classic. Joining us for this occasion is jubilant Ronald Brautigam. A thoroughbred adventurer on the keys who will celebrate his seventieth birthday in 2024.
