WATCH: Kirill Gerstein Plays/Talks Brahms Piano Concerto No. 1

Posted May 22, 2015

Kirill Gerstein joined us after rehearsal to talk about the beloved work he performs with us this week. He demonstrates its "introspective recollection of the Schumann spirit" and reveals a motivic "watermark" that unifies the work. Hear him perform it Saturday evening and at the Saturday Matinee, both conducted by Susanna Mälkki.
