When Brahms came to write his Second Piano Concerto more than two decades after his First, out went the confident swagger of a man in his prime and in came a feeling of intimacy and expectation. Oliver Knussen balances the Brahms with the far-flung world of Der nächtliche Wanderer (‘The Night Wanderer’) by Dutch composer and conductor Reinbert de Leeuw. This deftly coloured symphonic poem has been described as ‘a bath of beauty’ and ‘a high-density monument in music’.
