Hilary Hahn plays Mozart
Part of LPO 12/13Wednesday 24 October 2012
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: Violin Concerto No.5 in A, K.219
Anton Bruckner: Symphony No.7
Mozart and Bruckner are composers often associated for writing with the utmost purity and serenity, but in this concert they give expression to far more human, earthy feelings.
Bruckner's Seventh Symphony is his most agile and delicately etched, containing in its beautiful Adagio a heartfelt eulogy for Richard Wagner but thrusting with full-blown, changeable and excitingly brash music elsewhere.
In his Fifth Violin Concerto, Mozart used sounds and techniques from the highly fashionable and exotic music of the Turkish Ottoman empire to create one of his most down-to-earth and vivid pieces.Performers
