Information about the programme

Long live the classics! Rudolf Buchbinder, the grandseigneur of the piano and a welcome guest at the BRSO, will play Mozart’s C minor Piano Concerto of 1786. The gloomy, ominous opening is unusual for Mozart’s concertos; and even if a more relaxed, almost cheerful mood reigns in the Larghetto, the final set of variations returns us to the wind-swept C minor atmosphere. Elim Chan, a conductor born in Hong Kong, will open the concert with Beethoven’s Egmont Overture, a paean to the ideal of liberty and revolt against political suppression. Rounding off the evening is a piece never before played in Munich by the BRSO: Tchaikovsky’s Second Symphony.
