Guest Artist: The St Paul Chamber Orchestra with Christian Zacharias
Former Artistic Partner Christian Zacharias returns to the SPCO to perform Mozart’s final piano concerto and conduct Beethoven’s Second Symphony. Mozart’s autumnal farewell to the piano concerto, the medium that brought him the most success in his lifetime as a composer and performer, is beautifully paired with Anton Bruckner’s gorgeous Adagio for Strings, arranged from the original string quintet version by the late Stanislaw Skrowaczewski. Another elegiac work, Jörg Widmann’s Aria, opens the second half, before the sunny D Major of Beethoven’s Second Symphony brings the concert to a joyous conclusion.
This event is unticketed, free, and open to the public. Doors will open at 7:30pm.
