Chopin Piano Concerto


Chopin piano concerto 1484165676

César Franck’s only symphony begins in darkness – but by the end, it’s shouting jubilantly to the heavens. And with the French-born conductor Fabien Gabel conducting, you’ll wonder why we don’t hear it more often. It’s the grand, gothic climax to a concert that’s all about emotion: whether Berlioz’s wave-tossed overture, or the long, dreamy melodies of Frédéric Chopin – played by the incomparable Louis Schwizgebel.
