Maya Irgalina - Piano
Raff - Ein' feste Burg ist unser Gott
Chopin - Piano Concerto No.1 in E minor
Schumann - Symphony No.1, Spring
For our opening concert of the season we are delighted to
welcome back pianist Maya Irgalina, who will be performing
Chopin's Piano Concerto No.1. Written when Chopin was only 20, it
was premièred to 'thunderous applause' and reviewed, 'There is
spirit in these melodies, there is fantasy in these passages, and
everywhere there is originality.'
We open with Joachim Raff's dramatic concert overture based on
the Lutheran chorale of the same name. Raff gave the published
score the title 'Ein feste Burg ist unser Gott, Overture to a drama on
the 30 years war' Op.127, after the conflict sparked off by Luther's reforms.
The concert closes with Schumann's Symphony No.1, the 'Spring Symphony'. Written in 1841, he asked that 'I would like the music
to...show how everything to do with spring is coming alive.'
