Orchestra of St John’s – Mozart and Beethoven

Sat 21 September 18:00 - 20:00

Beethoven ‘Coriolanus’ Overture
Beethoven Piano concerto No. 4
Mozart Ch’io mi scordi di te?
Mozart Symphony No. 36 ‘Linz’

Rupert Egerton-Smith piano
Hannah Davey soprano
Orchestra of St John’s

The fourth concerto is Beethoven in his most jovial mood but it also contains the drama that we associate with this composer. On first listening it sounds like a concerto that a virtuoso might just dash off with the usual élan but, on closer inspection, it is far more difficult to bring off than one imagines.
The ‘Linz’ is the grandly inventive work that Mozart made in such a hurry. For the first time he begins a symphony with a slow introduction, declamatory at the outset, then yielding and full of pathos, and cannily creating suspense.
