Programmes

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Concerto for Piano and Orchestra in A major KV 414
- interval -
Charles Ives
Symphony No. 2

The American composer Charles Ives was an insurance broker, had a reputation as a solitary eccentric and loved inserting musical quotations into his works. In 1901 he completed the second of his six symphonies, and it is this that the Tonkunstler Orchestra and young Austrian conductor Patrick Hahn have chosen to start their rediscovery of his oeuvre for themselves and their audience. «Music is for moving you, not impressing you», says Louis Schwizgebel, who prefers to play Schubert, Mozart and Beethoven than Rachmaninov or Tchaikovsky. Voilà: the Swiss pianist makes his Tonkunstler debut with Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s delicate A major Piano Concerto K. 414, which was written in Vienna and builds magical bridges between simplicity and virtuosity.
