KRISTIAN BEZUIDENHOUT Director / Harpsichord / Piano
For Kristian Bezuidenhout, "Mozart is the most important musical figure in my life: there’s absolutely no question about that.” No question, either, that it is a joy to welcome the acclaimed pianist and director back to the SCO. He pairs a flamboyant, joyous symphony by his idol with arguably his most emotionally complex piano concerto. Opening the concert is a brilliant rarity by a composer Mozart himself adored: CPE Bach, JS Bach’s extrovert, second eldest son. Filled with a devil-may-care wildness, explosive drama and sheer panache, this is music that never fails to thrill and surprise.
