The Philadelphia Orchestra - Biss Plays Mozart

Friday, Apr 26, 2013 2:00p
Kimmel Center: Verizon Hall Philadelphia, PA

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 sounds of marching bands, church bells, and drunken revelers. Curtis graduate Jonathan Biss performs Mozart’s rarely-heard Piano Concerto No. 13.
