Benjamin Britten drew many great musicians to his festival in Aldeburgh, including Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, Julian Bream and Russian pianist Sviatoslav Richter, who is the soloist in Mozart's Piano Concerto in E flat, K.482, with Benjamin Britten conducting the English Chamber Orchestra. Britten wrote the cadenzas at Richter's request specifically for this performance. Britten dared to step outside the musical language of Mozart's original and express the full sonorities and virtuoso displays that a grand piano is capable of in an extraordinary mix of musical styles and melodic invention.
