The piece immortalised by Kubrick in 2001: A Space Odyssey

The second of Johannes Brahms’s two piano concertos is an excellent example of musical maturity and transcendental virtuosity, both required of a soloist. On this occasion, French pianist François-Frédéric Guy performs in the Liceu with a key piece in his artistic trajectory.

Furthermore, Nietzsche’s Thus Spoke Zarathustra inspired one of Richard Strauss’s most well-known symphonic poems, especially its opening fanfare, which has been used in audiovisual media after Stanley Kubrick borrowed it for his 1968 film 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Tickets on sale from June 2017.
