Bernard Haitink and Leif Ove Andsnes perform Brahms’s Second Piano Concerto

In this recording from March 2011, Leif Ove Andsnes, the Philharmoniker’s then Pianist in Residence, performs Brahms’s Second Piano Concerto with Bernard Haitink. For many, the work is the epitome of heavyweight late Romanticism – but in Andsnes’s hands, a delicate tone emerges from the thunderous keyboard playing. Plus, we hear Witold Lutosławski’s Fourth Symphony: a work of imaginative genius and atmospheric intensity.
