Saint-Saëns & Mendelssohn
SAINT-SAËNS Piano Concerto No.2 in G minor, Op.22
MENDELSSOHN Capriccio Brillant in B minor, Op.22
Saint-Saëns’ tempestuous, flighty and lyrical second piano concerto presents a wonderful contrast to Mendelssohn’s charming one-movement Capriccio Brillant.
MOZART Piano Concerto No.21 in C major, K.467
Perhaps his most beloved piano concerto: Mozart’s music is perfectly poised, and the concerto has the majesty and immensity of his greatest symphonies.
HUMMEL Piano Concerto No.4 in E major, Op.110
Hummel’s works are full of joie-de-vivre, their harmonic and lyrical variety showcasing his prodigious, virtuosic talent. If you are unfamiliar with Hummel, then the E major piano concerto is the perfect starting point.
Mozart & Moscheles
MOZART Piano Concerto No.6 in B-flat major, K.238 MOSCHELES Piano Concerto No.1 in F major, Op.45 Howard introduces a two-concerto concert that pairs a Mozart masterpiece with an unknown gem that’s packed with Mozartean grace and lyrical melody.
