A programme featuring Beethoven's most delicate, luminous concerto, and two works by Schumann born of tragedy and despair.

The dark course of fate shaped Schumann's Overture to Schiller's tragedy The Bride of Messina. But it was Schumann's own demons that surrounded his Second Symphony.

'I have tried to prevail against my physical condition,' wrote Schumann of the piece, and the music's ultimate triumph suggests he succeeded. Fighting from the very start, the symphony burns towards moments of thrilling invention and ultimately to uplifting renewal and optimism.
