Andrew Manze’s concerts with the Orchestra are always keenly awaited, and today he’s bringing with him a true giant of 21st-century piano playing – the Liverpool debut of Marc-André Hamelin. Brahms’s tempestuous First Piano Concerto is a colossal challenge for any player, but Hamelin has fingers of steel!
