R. Strauss - Don Juan
Saint-Saëns - Piano Concerto No.2
Mendelssohn - Symphony No.4, ‘Italian’

Ken-David Masur

Pavel Kolesnikov, piano

Having impressed Hallé audiences in 2019, Pavel Kolesnikov returns to play Saint-Saëns’ most popular concerto, his second, of which it was once said that ‘it begins with Bach and ends up with Offenbach’. Joining him is the conductor Ken-David Masur, Music Director of the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra. Richard Strauss’s tone poem Don Juan is a dazzling display of orchestral brilliance, as witnessed by the oboe’s captivating love music. Mendelssohn commented about the symphony he’d begun when visiting Italy, ‘It will be the jolliest piece I have done’, and indeed it does enshrine the sights and sounds of the country from its joyous, spring-like opening to its fiery, dancing conclusion.
