Mozart - Piano Concerto No.20, K.466
Schubert - Symphony No.9, ‘The Great’
Louis Lortie, piano
The Latvian, Ainars Rubikis, Music Director of the Komische Oper, Berlin, makes his first visit to the Hallé; his credentials include winning the 2010 Gustav Mahler Conducting Competition. Mozart’s D minor Piano Concerto hasn’t been heard in a Hallé concert for two decades. It journeys from tense foreboding to lightness and good humour, features that will be captured by one of today’s exceptional pianists and old friend of the orchestra, Louis Lortie. Schubert’s Ninth Symphony, known as ‘The Great’ C major, famously praised by Schumann for its ‘heavenly length’, and one of the glories of early Romanticism, concludes the concert.
