RESCHEDULED: Mozart in my Hands VII
The Vienna Young Philharmonic team up with international performers to present Mozart’s Piano Concertos

* abgespielt

MuTh and the Vienna Young Philharmonic entrust themselves into the hands of some talented young pianists. The players are chosen by a committee which includes the pianist Paul Gulda, professor of piano Franz Zettl, the conductor of “prima la musica Wien” Angelika Persterer-Ornig, and conductor Michael Lessky. The “Mozart in my hands” cycle first featured in the 2018/19 season, and is now entering its third year. The programme for the concert on 13th April 2021 is something rather special.
With their cheery, light quality, Mozart’s piano concertos have enjoyed sustained popularity since they first appeared. The wunderkind wrote twelve piano concertos between 1784 and 1786. That total eventually reached 27, each of which exists as a universe in itself.
“But this is truly the land of the clavier, the finest place in the world for a man of my profession.” Mozart’s piano concertos were so special to him that he preferred to play them himself. He was reluctant to hand them out for others to play. Mozart only released them to real aficionados and connoisseurs, and only then if they promised him they would not pass them on to anyone else.
