Brahms’s two piano concertos sit at the very summit of the concerto repertory for this instrument, closely approaching his symphonies both in their enormous breadth and in their irresistible romantic appeal. Marc-André Hamelin, a virtuoso among virtuosos and one of the Festival’s most popular attractions, performs these two magnificent creations in tandem on the same concert. This extravaganza brings together the Quebec talents of pianist Marc-André Hamelin, conductor Yannick Nézet-Séguin, and the Orchestre Métropolitain.
