The MSO is thrilled to welcome internationally renowned virtuoso concert pianist Sam Haywood as soloist in Brahms’ monumental 2nd Piano Concerto (1881), as much a major symphonic work as it is a virtuoso display for the soloist.

Sam Haywood has performed to critical acclaim in many of the world’s major concert halls. A finalist in the BBC Young Musician 1986, the Washington Post has hailed his ‘dazzling, evocative playing’ and ‘lyrical sensitivity’ and the New York Times his ‘passionate flair and sparkling clarity’. A regular duo partner with both violinist Joshua Bell, with whom he has recently toured in the US, and cellist Steven Isserlis, Sam is equally at home as a soloist or chamber musician as on the concerto platform.

The genesis of the 2nd symphony of Sibelius can be traced to Sibelius’ trip to Italy in early 1901. The 2nd symphony has retained an extraordinary popularity for its individualistic tonal language, dark wind colouring, muted string writing , simple folklike themes and distinctly “national” flavour that are all Sibelian to the core.
