Mozart & Bartók
BBC National Orchestra of Wales
Thursday 9 May, 7.30pmBook now
|Jac van Steen||Conductor|
|Bartók||Piano Concerto No. 3|
|Mozart||Symphony No. 40|
Please note that Xian Zhang has sadly had to withdraw from this concert, but we are delighted that Jac van Steen will step in to conduct.
A dark and intense programme is spearheaded by Coriolan's call to revolt, with Bartók and Mozart sustaining the momentum with taut, brooding works.
Beethoven and Bartók match each other in visceral energy in the first half. Beethoven’s overture is driven by the internal conflict and grand struggle of its Shakespearean hero, while Bartók, undimmed by illness and exile, displays his passion for his homeland and the Old World. Mozart brings the power of his operatic writing to his penultimate symphony, a masterclass in tension and release.
Please note that all BBC NOW concerts are recorded live for BBC Radio broadcast. Patrons are encouraged to bring along children and take advantage of Family Tickets, but please be aware that any noise can be picked up on the broadcast. No content is unsuitable for children, but there may be extended periods of loud music. BBC NOW concerts are generally suitable for ages 7+, but parents will be the best judge of whether their children are able to sit quietly for a long time. We would also advise taking an aisle seat so they can exit easily if needed.
