Chopin Piano Concerto No. 2
Lutoslawski Symphony No. 4

Chopin’s Second Concerto is the work of a young, yet profound, artistic spirit reaching deeply into his own soul, finding moments of poetic lyricism contrasted with rapturous passages of virtuosity. In many ways, Lutoslawski’s Fourth Symphony is his swan song – being his last work in the genre and his final large-scale piece. It’s a synthesis of the composer’s life’s work, featuring many of Lutoslawski’s characteristic features, such as sweeping melodies and sharp dissonances.
