Bezuidenhout, Scottish Chamber Orchestra, Mozart

A passionate advocate of Mozart, pianist and conductor Kristian Bezuidenhout directs the Scottish Chamber Orchestra in the composer's Symphony No 29 and Piano Concerto No 24

A passionate advocate of Mozart, Kristian Bezuidenhout directs the Scottish Chamber Orchestra in a concert from the City Halls in Glasgow in homage to Mozart. The uplifting and joyous Symphony No 29 is paired with the later, more complex Piano Concerto No 24, one of the few works that Mozart wrote in the minor key. South African pianist Kristian Bezuidenhout directs from the podium and the piano.
