Australian pianist Daniel de Borah joins the Sydney Symphony Orchestra to play a favourite Mozart piano concerto.

Mozart’s Piano Concerto No.21, always a favourite, took on a new and glamorous life when its rapturous slow movement starred in the 1967 Swedish movie Elvira Madigan. Few nowadays have seen the movie but the concerto hardly needs its help. That ecstatic slow movement is framed by music that’s rich and energetic, brilliant and good-humoured, and absolutely captivating. No wonder it’s one of the most frequently recorded of all the Mozart concertos. In this concert it’s paired with a serenade for string orchestra by Josef Suk, composed when he was still a student. Perhaps it was teenage angst, but he’d acquired a reputation for writing gloomy music. His teacher, Dvořák, told Suk to stop being a sook, so to speak, and this sunny and graceful serenade was the result.
