Mozart Piano Concerto

Classical Concert
Saturday Jan 20th, 2018 7:30 PM – 9:30 PM
Springfield Symphony Hall

Kevin Rhodes, Conductor/Soloist: Diane Walsh, Piano

 

HAYDN   Desert Island Overture
MOZART  Piano Concert No. 20, K.466, D minor   
BEETHOVEN  Symphony No. 3, Op. 55, E flat major (Eroica)

 

These three composing contemporaries--friends, mentors and teachers--shocked and awed their audiences with their wild and wooly works!

  • Desert Island Overture, a violent example of classical era tone painting, uses "sturm und drang" (storm and stress) to caue extremes of emotions.
  • Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 20, considered his most turbulent and Beethoven-ish works, is performed by Diane Walsh. 
  • Beethoven's bold Symphony No. 3, The Eroica (Heroic), celebrates the heroism of the individual against tyranny.
