Simone Young, the most acclaimed orchestra conductor on the symphonic circuit, returns to ‎lead the OBC with an internationally renowned musician: Javier Perianes. The Andalusian ‎pianist has already collaborated with the OBC on several occasions (with concerts by ‎Beethoven and Saint-Saens) and this time brings us one of the most important works of the ‎piano repertoire of all times: Brahms’s Second Concerto, an orchestral monument of ‎immense magnitude which is widely considered to be “the piano concerto par excellence.”‎

Schubert's Sixth Symphony, also known as the ‘Little C Major’ - to distinguish it from the ‎Ninth Symphony in the same key (known as the ‘Great C Major) -, is a sweet symphonic ‎wonder influenced by his adored Beethoven and Rossini but which, unfortunately, could not ‎be premiered until a few months after Schubert’s death. Full of joyful twists and overflowing ‎with optimism, it is a work worth discovering.‎
