Legendary pianist Krystian Zimerman joins Lan Shui and the Singpore Symphony Orchestra in Brahms’ First Piano Concerto, one of the towering peaks of the genre. Schoenberg’s early music is very much in the late-Romantic tradition, drawing inspiration from Wagner, Mahler and Strauss and characterized by his exceptional skill in orchestration. The pinnacle of this phase is his opulent and epic tone poemPelleas und Melisande, based on Maeterlinck’s popular play about a pair of doomed lovers.  Scored for a huge orchestra, this work has been championed by conductors as diverse as Boulez, Abbado and Karajan.
