Proms 2016 Prom 69 Prom 69: Staatskapelle Berlin and Daniel Barenboim – Mozart and Bruckner

Prom 69


19:30 Monday 5 Sep 2016 Royal Albert Hall

  • Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart 1756–1791
  • Piano Concerto No 24 in C minor, K 491 (31 mins)
  • Anton Bruckner 1824–1896
  • Symphony No 4 in E flat major 'Romantic' (69 mins)

Daniel Barenboim and his Staatskapelle Berlin open three consecutive evenings in which a Mozart piano concerto is paired with a Bruckner symphony. ‘We shall never be able to do anything like that,’ proclaimed Beethoven when he heard Mozart’s dramatic, minor-key Piano Concerto No. 24.

As with Mozart in his concertos, with each of Bruckner’s symphonies came a keener focus of vision and honing of craft. With the Fourth, Bruckner really came of age, bringing a newfound confidence in the glowing first movement, while its statuesque Andante is a moving premonition of loss.
