Information about the programme

Igor Levit will continue his residency at the BRSO with Mozart’s “Jeunehomme” Piano Concerto (K 271). To the present day it remains incomprehensible how the 21-year-old Mozart, in his final Salzburg concerto, could indulge his wonted jeu d’esprit while plumbing such precocious spiritual depths as in the tragic C minor slow movement. Originally Yannick Nézet-Séguin was meant to stand at the helm until prevented from travelling by covid regulations. His place will be taken by the 24-year-old Finnish conductor Klaus Mäkelä, who advanced this season to become principal conductor of the Oslo Symphony, an orchestra shaped by Mariss Jansons. Framing the “Jeunehomme” Concerto will be two string studies composed for Paul Sacher and his Basle Chamber Orchestra: Igor Stravinsky’s Concerto in D and the popular Divertimento by Béla Bartók.
