JOHANNES BRAHMS
Piano Concerto No. 1 in D Minor, Op. 15

JEAN-SÉBASTIEN BACH
Italian Concerto in F Major, BWV 971

ROBERT SCHUMANN
Symphony No. 1 in B-flat Major, Op. 38, “Spring”

The concert opens with Haydn’s Sinfonia Concertante featuring Verbier Festival Chamber Orchestra soloists on oboe, bassoon, violin, and cello. Then comes Schumann’s festive Symphony No. 1, “The Spring,” a work composed soon after his marriage and his first daughter’s birth. Finally, Sir András Schiff takes the stage for the concert’s culminating piece: Brahms’ Piano Concerto No.1. The youthful work was initially met with mixed reviews: a Leipzig critic even wrote after the second performance that the concerto “cannot give pleasure”! The concerto’s popularity has progressively grown, and it is now one of Brahms’ most popular works.
