Mozart The King

Melbourne Chamber Orchestra 

In the 1780s, Mozart forged a new path as an independent composer and pianist. The piano concertos were a vehicle for his prowess in both roles—opening up the musical possibilities of the piano concerto and bringing Mozart to the height of his fame as a performer. Majestic, elegant and expansive, the Piano Concerto No 22 delights with its subtle beauty and Mozart’s ever-present gift for melody. To perform it with MCO, one of Australia’s best loved and most charismatic pianists, Stefan Cassomenos.

Haydn received the news that Mozart had died while writing his 98th Symphony, and it became a coded tribute to the great composer, quoting his Coronation Mass, the Jupiter Symphony and even God Save the King.

With a feisty Cimarosa overture and Beethoven’s intimate Romance performed with outstanding violinist Natalia Harvey as soloist, this is quite simply a classical feast.

Performers: Stefan Cassomenos, piano; Michael Dahlenburg, conductor; Natalia Harvey, violin; Melbourne Chamber Orchestra
