One of the most esteemed pianists of today, Sir Andras Schiff, joins forces with fellow Hungarians in an exploration of two celebrated works of German Romanticism. Weber’s Der Freischütz (The Freeshooter) sees Romanticism take a supernatural turn when a huntsman makes a deal with the Devil. Schumann’s generous, poetic bravura work renegotiates the traditional relationship between soloist and orchestra in a concerto.
Andrew McGregor and Katy Hamilton introduce this Prom from the Royal Albert Hall in London.
Airs Saturday, August 19 at 2pm.
