Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: Piano Concerto No.9 in E flat, K.271
Joseph Haydn: Symphony No.98 in B flat
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: Piano Concerto No.24 in C minor, K.491
Tonight's concert sees a pair of Mozart's greatest piano concertos being performed by one of the world's greatest pianists, András Schiff.
The Ninth Piano Concerto was dubbed 'Mozart's Eroica' by none other than Albert 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.
