Francesco Piemontesi in the wild emotions of the Romantic

The piano as a fiery fighter, battling against a temperamental orchestra: that’s the feel we get from Brahms’ First Piano Concerto. He composed it shortly after Robert Schumann - whom he greatly admired - had attempted to commit suicide by throwing himself into the icy Rhine. In his Second Symphony, Schumann is in far better spirits. It is a gem of orchestral colours, sharp rhythmic formulae and melancholic melodies that plumb the depths of the romantic soul.
