Polish pianist Piotr Anderszewski is performing with the London Symphony Orchestra and Sir John Eliot Gardiner. He will be playing Mozart’s Piano Concerto No 25 alongside a programme of Schumann.

Schumann’s Overture, Scherzo and Finale was originally conceived as a symphony, or ‘symphonette’ as he liked to call it, but having no slow movement he eventually republished it as this three-movement work. The Fourth Symphony was also revised by Schumann after the unsuccessful premiere. However, in the face of opposition from Clara, Brahms later revived the original version, presented in this concert, which he considered lighter and more transparent in texture.
