- Anja Bihlmaier conductor
- Martin James Bartlett piano
Mozart’s darkest piano concerto and Beethoven’s most explosive, exuberant and utterly uninhibited symphony.
Richard Wagner bowed to no artist but Ludwig van Beethoven – in fact, friends once witnessed him dancing along to Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony. Beethoven, meanwhile, listened to a Mozart piano concerto and remarked that ‘we shall never be able to do anything like that’. Today, three geniuses are linked by passion, imagination and by sheer, elemental creative power, as Anja Bihlmaier conducts and Martin James Bartlett – renowned for his astonishing technique and maturity beyond his years –takes the soloist’s spotlight in Wagner’s stormiest overture, Mozart’s darkest piano concerto and Beethoven’s most explosive, exuberant and utterly uninhibited symphony. Genius in the raw.
