About This Event

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.
