Tonight’s concert opens with one of Mozart’s most sparkling symphonies, which dates from his early years in Vienna. Steven Osborne then joins the orchestra in Shostakovich’s second piano concerto, written in 1957 as a birthday gift for his 19-year-old son Maxim, and the concert ends with Schumann’s last, and to many his greatest, symphony.

“He (Steven Osborne) brings to each piece of movement a sort of momentousness – as much a matter of sheer musical thought as of executive brilliance – that keeps one fixed on him as if no other music counts.” The Sunday Times, March 2018
