about the programme

The outstanding Lithuanian conductor Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla is a champion of unjustly forgotten composers. One such composer is Shostakovich’s friend Mieczysław Weinberg, whose Second Symphony of 1946, a harrowing backward glance at the bleak war years, received its premier recording under her baton. This moving rediscovery contrasts with Mozart’s final Piano Concerto, K 595, whose life-affirming finale has made it one of the composer’s most popular concertos altogether. This time it will once again bring the Swiss pianist Francesco Piemontesi to the BRSO. Mozart drew on the theme of its rondo movement for his lied Sehnsucht nach dem Frühling (K 596), whose opening words, “Komm, lieber Mai, und mache”, can easily be sung to the concerto’s tuneful finale. The next work, Beethoven’s “Leonore” Overture with its liberating trumpet fanfare, describes a political rebirth after a murderous dictatorship.
