»Superb«, »extraordinary«, »enchanting« – for more than 20 years, Denis Matsuev has been conquering concert halls and audience hearts. His interpretations on stage and his recordings, especially of the romantic repertoire, invariably reap enthusiasm and admiration. In his concert with the Hamburg Philharmonic State Orchestra, the Russian virtuoso plays Johannes Brahms’ Second Piano Concerto, which moved the critic Eduard Hanslick to call it »a grand symphony with piano obligato« in 1882. The Seventh Symphony, first performed in Leipzig in 1884, finally brought the 60-year-old Anton Bruckner the breakthrough and the recognition he craved as a composer.
