Piano Explored: Mozart (Online Concert)

Thursday, 18 March 2021, 1.05pm

Programme:
Mozart Piano Concerto No. 21 in C major, K.467

Artists:
London Mozart Players
Howard Shelley piano

March’s Piano Explored concert is dedicated to a real favourite of the classical repertoire. Mozart composed his twenty-first piano concerto in a hugely busy period of his life but the music is perfectly poised, and the concerto has the majesty and immensity of his greatest symphonies. The beautifully expressive slow movement, which in the 1960s experienced a burst of fame as the theme for art house film ‘Elvira Madigan’, verges on the operatic, with a quiet melody moving over a pulsating accompaniment. This lunch-hour concert also includes Howard Shelley’s enlightening insights into the piece, delivered before the LMP and the impeccably stylish Shelley perform this technically demanding and hugely popular masterpiece.
