Piano: Dominic Degavino (WMSO Young Musician 2014)
This programme contrasts the stirring nationalism of Finlandia – the work Sibelius didn’t want to be remembered for – and the pinnacle of romantic idealism in Parsifal, the culmination of Wagner’s output. It also includes a piano concerto that is a testament not only to its composer’s brilliance but also to his introspection and the symphony that eluded Brahms until the age of 42, a monument to music for its own sake and a worthy successor to Beethoven’s.
