Concertmaster Andrew Haveron pairs an early Haydn symphony with one of Mozart’s sublime piano concertos, played by Orli Shaham.
Mozart didn’t write many piano concertos in minor keys, but when he did they are treasure troves of drama and powerful emotion. Piano Concerto No.24 is no exception: it sets off with menacing music from the orchestra, when the piano enters it brings a pensive mood. If you admire Mozart’s graceful simplicity, laughing melodies and elegance of form, this concerto will remind you of his darker side – even the brilliant finale has its shadows. No wonder Beethoven was envious! The concert ends with the second instalment in Haydn’s ‘Times of Day’ trilogy. Symphony No.7 is designed to show off the virtuosity of all the instruments in the orchestra, especially the concertmaster, who gets to play ‘diva’ in an elaborate parody of an Italian opera singer.
