Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
»CH'IO MI SCORDI DI TE« – Concert aria for mezzo-soprano, piano and orchestra K. 505
CONCERTO FOR TWO PIANOS IN E FLAT MAJOR K. 365
SYMPHONY NO. 4 IN E FLAT MAJOR »ROMANTIC«
Mozart wrote uncommonly many piano duets – several sonatas for four hands, one for two pianos, and a concerto for two pianos. The latter boldly elaborated work in E-flat major will be performed as part of the Staatskapelle’s FESTTAGE concert series, followed by a major Anton Bruckner symphony in the same key. Its “Romantic” nickname is well-earned: it features sounds and expressive themes that immediately evoke many of the word’s connotations.
