Video on demand: Liszt Piano Concerto No 2

GSOplayRecorded at Gothenburg Concert Hall: Stora Salen, Gothenburg, Sweden
Free to view

Liszt was a musical revolutionary whose works, with their versatility and evasive character, refused to let themselves be captured and defined.

In the second piano concerto, he made fun of Prussian military music (ridiculously showy marches), tickled the bourgeoisie with unabashedly sentimental and emotional tunes (genuine and ingratiating in equal measure), and gave the circus audience a piano part so virtuosic that there were barely enough keys. Alice Sara Ott is a daring and wilful pianist who, with a determined gaze, delivers exactly what is needed for this music.

Recorded for GSOplay 23 November 2018

Extended concert range at GSOplay

Due to the corona pandemic, the concerts of the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra are closed to the public in the up-coming weeks. However, with a strong commitment and belief in the uniting power of music, Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra will be available to all music lovers on GSOplay. The concerts can be enjoyed for free for anyone on the web or through our app – wherever you are.

The ambition is to extend the range with new concerts available every tuesday and friday, culled from our rich archive with international artists such as Santtu-Matias Rouvali, Barbara Hannigan and Kent Nagano.
