About This Performance
Tchaikovsky’s First Piano Concerto was premiered in Boston by the German pianist and conductor Hans von Bülow after Nicolai Rubinstein – the composer’s first choice – contemptuously declared it unplayable. Bülow triumphantly telegraphed Tchaikovsky the news of the great success the work made, reprised it a few days later, and then quickly added it to his European concerts. The concerto has been a mainstay of heroic pianists ever since.
Two of the hottest musicians in the world in the mother of all Romantic piano concertos.
Dudamel leads the LA Phil for the first time in music by Danish master Carl Nielsen, his powerful symphony about “the elemental will to live.”
