MOZART Piano Concerto No. 24 in C minor, K.491
Andris Nelsons leads this all-Mozart program featuring four acclaimed vocalists in Mozart’s transformative Requiem, which he began in response to a mysterious commission. The work remained incomplete at his death in 1791, but at Constanze Mozart’s request, Mozart’s pupil Franz Xaver Süssmayer finished it with remarkable fidelity to the master’s style. Opening the program, the great Romanian pianist Radu Lupu plays one of Mozart’s most unusual piano concertos, No. 24 in C minor. Composed in the spring of 1786 and premiered by the composer in Vienna, the proto-Romantic C minor is unique in its strangeness and restlessness, and features a fascinating theme-and-variations finale.
