Mozart: Piano Concerto No.12, K.414 (c.23 mins)
Sibelius: Symphony No.4 (c.39 mins)
Ryan Wigglesworth: piano/director
Sibelius’s Fourth Symphony is perhaps the composer’s most enigmatic. From its brooding opening it moves like a great sea creature in the depths, mysterious, powerful, and only occasionally rising towards the light. It’s also thought by many to be the composer’s greatest work. Ryan Wigglesworth is sure to bring out all its richness and intensity after he takes to the keyboard as the soloist in Mozart’s elegant early Piano Concerto. And to set things off with a flourish, a World Premiere of a new work from our Artist in Residence and a major voice in contemporary composition, Jörg Widmann.
