MOZART Overture to Don Giovanni
MOZART Piano Concerto No.9
MAHLER Symphony No.5
Rafael Payare Conductor
Lise de la Salle Piano
Royal Philharmonic Orchestra
Under the baton of charismatic Venezuelan conductor Rafael Payare, Mozart’s Overture to Don Giovanni foreshadows the drama to come. From its ominous opening to the exuberance and energy of Don Giovanni himself, Mozart’s Overture provides an energetic curtain raiser to the concert.
Followed by beauty, clarity and timeless grace in arguably the first really great piano concerto by Mozart, the acclaimed young pianist, Lise de la Salle, takes to the stage to perform Mozart’s Piano Concerto No.9.
From darkness a lone trumpet call summons forth Mahler’s stormy Symphony No.5, journeying from the tragic despair of the first movement to the triumphant finale via a heart-wrenching Adagietto movement scored for strings and harp.
This concert will be dedicated to the memory of André Previn, former Music Director and Principal Conductor of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, 1985 – 1992
