Bavouzet Double Bill
Date: Saturday 12th October 2013 19:30
Venue: RNCM Concert Hall, Manchester
The multi-award-winning French pianist Jean-Efflam Bavouzet returns in a concerto double-bill – Mozart&s charming Piano Concerto no.17 and Haydn&s cheeky Piano Concerto in G. Haydn and Jan&a’ÜÎçek, often undeservedly overshadowed respectively by Mozart and Dvo’Ä_Ü¢&ak, are two composers drawn to the earth – Haydn to the Hungarian character he picked up in his isolation at Esterhazy Palace, Jan&a’ÜÎçek to his native Czech folklore. Jan&a’ÜÎçek&s Suite is a gorgeously lyrical, folk-infused work for string orchestra. Haydn&s emotional Trauer or Mourning Symphony, full of endless characters and colours, will bring the programme to a dramatic conclusion.
“I was cut off from the world. There was no one to confuse or torment me, and I was forced to become original.” Joseph Haydn
