Programme

Performers

Mozart and Bartók

*We are sorry to announce that Lukáš Vondráček is unable to perform with us in Cardiff and Swansea next week. We are very grateful to Llŷr Williams for stepping in at short notice to perform Bartok’s Piano Concerto No. 3. The rest of the programme remains unchanged.

Beethoven and Bartók match each other in visceral energy in the first half. Beethoven’s overture is driven by the internal conflict and grand struggle of its Shakespearean hero, while Bartók, undimmed by illness and exile, displays his passion for his homeland and the Old World. Mozart brings the power of his operatic writing to his penultimate symphony, a masterclass in tension and release.

We are sorry to announce that Xian Zhang has withdrawn from this performance due to personal reasons. We are delighted to announce that Jac van Steen will now conduct this concert
