Mozart I

Date: Saturday 13th October 2012 19:30

Venue: RNCM Concert Hall, Manchester

The young Swiss-Italian pianist Francesco Piemontesi joinsG&abor Tak&acs-Nagy and the orchestra in one of Mozart’s most dark and brooding, yet lyrical, of piano concertos. Two twentieth century British string masterpieces are featured, Holst’s ever popular, dance-infused St Paul’s Suite and Elgar’s Sospiri, meaning sighs, a melodic work of tragic beauty, written in the build up to the First World War. There is also the opportunity to hear Haydn’s Symphony no. 92, nick-named the ‘Oxford’, a work brimming with invention and humour.
