Ives Symphony No 2

Date: 14 Apr
Time: 19:00
Sir Mark Elder

Kirill Gerstein

Sir Mark Elder takes us from German Romanticism to the eclecticism of one of the 20th-century's most individual composers - Charles Ives.

Graceful lyricism and dramatic power, irrepressible energy and intricate brilliance from the soloist - the hallmarks of Beethoven's writing for his own instrument all combine in his Piano Concerto No 3.

The second half brings something else entirely, from a composer like no other - Charles Ives' Second Symphony, a dizzying patchwork of quotations and allusions, peppered with snatches of popular tunes and hymns from the composer's American homeland.
