About this concert
We're delighted to welcome back inspirational scholar-pianist Robert Levin for a programme of Mozart's early works for keyboard and orchestra.
Composed between 1772 and 1774, this concert offers a snapshot of Mozart as a young but increasingly assured composer. From the Overture to Lucio Silla and an arrangement of a keyboard sonata by JC Bach, to the confident Symphony No.29 and Concerto No.5, Levin and co-director Pavlo Beznosiuk chart Mozart's course from child-prodigy to court composer.
“Levin lives Mozart throughout his entire body, and for every second of the score … he plays the music as if he’s writing it himself — for the first time.” The Times, 2011
Watch Robert Levin rehearse the finale of Concerto No.5 in D Major (1773) alongside co-director, AAM leader Pavlo Beznosiuk.
