Bartók and Brahms with Herbert Blomstedt and András Schiff

Béla Bartók’s Third Piano Concerto is one of the most touching of the 20th century. The gravely ill composer found his way to a tone for which he had not previously been known: more melodic, softer, almost religious. András Schiff, a favourite of the Berlin audience and closely bound to Bartók through his shared Hungarian origin, interprets the work with Herbert Blomstedt, who conducts Johannes Brahms’s First Symphony after the interval.
