Mozart’s Piano Concerto in C minor is widely regarded as the culmination of his achievement in the field of the piano concerto, and demands a larger orchestra than any of the other concertos. The severe and inexorable mood of the two great outer movements, the lofty thought and depth of passion, mark it as the true forerunner to those of Beethoven, and it is certainly well documented that the latter regarded the work very highly indeed.

Country Folksongs

Khachaturian was a composer with an incredible gift for melody, and the Violin Concerto is a fun and playful example of this. Its lush, oriental-sounding tunes, high-flying virtuosity and yearning melodic intensity soon appealed to worldwide audiences. Musical elements drawn from the folk songs and dances of Khachaturian’s native Armenia add to the festive intoxication, which are also present in the lusciously evocative Adagio from his ballet Spartacus.

Sunwook's Rach Three

Friday 01 May 2015 £14.75, £19, £21, £24.25, £29.50* "Kids for a Quid"

The BSO finishes its 2014/15 Portsmouth season with Principal Conductor Kirill Karabits and the BSO Artist-in-Residence Sunwook Kim. Rachmaninov said that he wrote the Third Piano Concerto “for elephants” and with its massive chords, cascading and leaping octaves, high-speed runs, dense counterpoint, and wide-spaced, busily embellished textures, it does demand a pianist with strength, dexterity, control, and stamina - and big hands! But the virtuosity always serves dramatic and expressive ends. A mood of dark, impassioned lyricism prevails throughout which builds with urgent expressiveness before reaching an almost delirious close.
