Mozart and Strauss

Susanna Mälkki conducts the Suisse Romande Orchestra in Mozart's Piano Concerto No 23, with Yeol Eum Son, and Strauss's Metamorphosen. Plus a work from 2019's New Music Biennial.

Continuing with our week of concerts by the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande, today we feature the ensemble under the baton of Susanna Mälkki performing two Mozart pieces, first the overture to his opera Don Giovanni, followed by his Piano Concerto No. 23 in A, with the South Korean virtuosa Yeol Eum Son as soloist. The afternoon continues with Metamorphosen, Richard Strauss' tone poem, more like a study for 23 strings, played by the Swiss ensemble, this time under conductor Julien Leroy.
Also, a newly commissioned piece from the New Music Biennial that took place at the South Bank Centre in London earlier this month.
Presented by Penny Gore.
