Krystian Zimerman, one of the greatest pianists of our time, joins forces with Sir Simon Rattle in Brahms’s magnificent First Piano Concerto, inspired by his grief for Robert Schumann and his awakening passion for Clara, whose 'gentle portrait' emerges in the serene slow movement. Two characterful symphonic tone-poems by Brahms’s protégé Dvořák based on Czech folk legends complete this colourful programme with a distinctive Central European flavour.
