Conductor Johannes Fritzsch
Soloist Piers Lane, piano
Mozart Piano Concerto No.23 in A, K488
Bruckner Symphony No.7 (Mvts 1, 3, 4)
Johannes Fritzsch, Queensland Symphony Orchestra's Conductor Laureate, conducts Bruckner's ravishing seventh symphony - a spiritual odyssey of dark cosmic power rich in melodic beauty. Trembling strings whisper mystery at the start. Eloquently mournful, the Adagio is a moving elegy to Wagner. Spiky rhythms fire the Scherzo and the trumpet’s lively tune portrays a crowing rooster. Peeling brass and eddying strings draw the work to a close. In 1786, Mozart wrote three piano concertos. No.23 is a gem. One of Mozart’s most treasured works, the piano’s confessional voice in the Adagio especially touches the heart. In the Finale, enjoy the soloist’s rapid flurries through rippled passagework.
