Beethoven Symphony No. 1
Mozart Piano Concerto No. 9
Strauss Don Juan
Strauss Till Eulenspiegel's Merry Pranks

Acclaimed German pianist Lars Vogt returns to perform Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 9. Described by music critic Alfred Einstein as 'Mozart's Eroica', it was one of the first great Classical concertos, and offers a fascinating counterpart to the Beethoven's visionary First Symphony, written little more than twenty years later.

Nikolaus Lena's play Don Juan provided Richard Strauss with the perfect inspiration for his

opulent orchestration in the third piece in this concert, whilst the incorrigible

trickster, Till Eulenspiegel, brings the evening to an end with this larger than life, mischievous score.

Schoenberg Verklärte Nacht

Schoenberg's Verklärte Nacht was his earliest major work and its intense beauty is a far cry from the harder sounds of his later years. Here it's performed by a Hallé string sextet, with the Richard Dehmel poem that inspired it read by Joel Davidge.
