Proms 2016 Prom 71 Prom 71: Staatskapelle Dresden, Christian Thielemann and Daniil Trifonov – Mozart and Bruckner

Prom 71


19:30 Wednesday 7 Sep 2016 Royal Albert Hall

  • Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart 1756–1791
  • Piano Concerto No 21 in C major, K 467
  • Anton Bruckner 1824–1896
  • Symphony No 3 in D minor (58 mins)

In the first of two Proms in which Christian Thielemann displays his credentials as an interpreter of the Austro-German repertoire, he focuses on Bruckner’s Third Symphony, the composer’s symphonic monument to his idol Wagner – a monolithic memorial that feels at the same time intimate and personal.

Before that, one of the most sought-after of today’s pianists, Daniil Trifonov, is the soloist in Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 21 – whose ebullient finale contrasts with the seraphic slow movement made famous by the 1967 film Elvira Madigan.
