The French pianist Hélène Grimaud, long considered one of the world’s finest, will play with the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra at Harpa this Sunday. She has recorded for Deutsche Grammophon and won many of the most coveted prizes for classical music. Grimaud performs Beethoven’s exquisite Piano Concerto no. 4 on this programme, which also includes two masterpieces from the turn of the 20th century: Strauss’ waltz-intensive Der Rosenkavalier Suite and Jean Sibelius’ Symphony no. 1.
At the podium is Finland’s Santtu-Matias Rouvali, one of the world’s most sought-out young conductors. Rouvali has conducted the Iceland Symphony twice before, with excellent results, and assumed the post of Chief Conductor of the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra in autumn 2017.
