The Philadelphia Orchestra: Biss Plays Mozart

Date/Time

Apr 25, 2013 to Apr 27, 2013

This event occurs daily, every 1 day(s).

Description

While Brahms struggled over his First Symphony for nearly two decades, he composed his radiant Second Symphony in a burst of creativity over a few short months. Its pastoral qualities were inspired by the bucolic setting where he wrote this score in the summer of 1877. Conversely, Elgar’s spirited Cockaigne Overture draws its character from the urban sounds of marching bands, church bells, and drunken revelers. Curtis graduate Jonathan Biss returns to perform Mozart’s rarely-heard Piano Concerto No. 13.
