EMELYANYCHEV DIRECTS MOZART PIANO CONCERTO No 20
Friday 1 May 2020
DEBUSSY Prélude à l’après-midi d’un Faune (10’)
FARRENC Symphony No 3 in G minor (31’)
MOZART Piano Concerto No 20 in D minor, K466 (30’)
MAXIM EMELYANYCHEV Conductor / Piano
Principal Conductor Maxim Emelyanychev opens his final Season concert with Debussy’s intoxicating Prélude à l’après midi d’un faune. Louise Farrenc may not be a household name today, but her Third Symphony is a masterpiece that has too often been forgotten amongst the works of her male counterparts. It is big and ambitious, and was well admired by the likes of Berlioz and Schumann.
To complete the concert, Maxim springs onto the piano to direct Mozart’s tempestuous Piano Concerto in D minor, K466.
