EXTERNAL EVENTS / Scottish Chamber Orchestra: Maria João Pires plays Mozart

Usher Hall, Edinburgh


Dvořàk: Legends Op 59: Nos 1-5
Mozart: Piano Concerto No 21 in C, K467
Dvořàk: Legends Op 59: Nos 6-10
Mozart: Piano Concerto No 27 in B-flat, K595

Robin Ticciati: conductor; Maria João Pires: piano

It’s hard not to hear Mozart’s last Piano Concerto No 27, K595 as a valedictory statement: its slow movement of luminous simplicity, the harmonic fantasy and experimentation of its first movement, the restrained joy of its finale. But this music’s special sound world – exquisitely matched to the radiance of Maria João Pires’ pianism – could so easily have heralded a new departure for Mozart’s piano concerto writing.

The C Major Concerto, written just a few years before, belongs to another world of extrovert manners and expressive generosity – qualities that Dvořàk’s Legends distil in refined but rustic miniature.
