Romantics and Nationalists celebrates the enormous intensity of expression of emotion of the Romantic movement, and the inspiration of national culture and ethnicity, through a collection of great masterpieces, performed by top-class international pianists of contrasting styles. Four richly-rewarding piano recitals of music that will enchant, entertain, mesmerise and move you.

Following the tradition of great masters such as Rachmaninov and Busoni, Finnish virtuoso Olli Mustonen combines the roles of his musicianship as composer, pianist and conductor in an equal balance that is quite exceptional. As a pianist, his range is broad and distinctive - his recording on Decca of Preludes by Shostakovich and Alkan received the Edison Award and Gramophone Award for the Best Instrumental Recording. A strong exponent of Prokofiev’s music, Mustonen has embarked on an ambitious project to perform and record all the piano concertos, and perform the entire cycle of piano sonatas at the Helsinki Music Centre and Lille Piano Festival.
