Tonight’s concert sees a pair of Mozart’s greatest piano concertos being performed by one of the world’s most acclaimed pianists, András Schiff.  The Ninth Piano Concerto was dubbed ‘Mozart’s Eroica’ by none other than Einstein, and the work contains a sublime and tender middle movement contained by two feisty outer movements. Piano Concerto No.24 is perhaps better known and builds out of a spectacularly moody and muscular opening. The evening’s musical sandwich is one of Haydn’s typically fresh and zesty symphonies, though again dark menacing undertones can be heard underneath the bright melodies.

Mozart Piano Concerto No. 9 in E flat, K271
Haydn Symphony No. 98 in B flat
Mozart Piano Concerto No. 24 in C minor, K491

András Schiff piano/conductor
