Barber Adagio for String QuartetGershwin Concerto in FMozart Piano Concerto No.11 in F, K413
Viv McLean piano
Pre-concert talk with David Bednall at 6.45pm
We're delighted to welcome back the virtuoso pianist Viv McLean, a firm favourite in our annual season of concerts. This year he'll be performing Gershwin's Piano Concerto in F, a jazzy, optimistic, richly-textured work packed full of fabulous tunes and toe-tapping rhythms. It was commissioned by Walter Damrosch, conductor of the New York Symphony Orchestra, the day after he had heard the premiere of Rhapsody in Blue. By contrast, Mozart's Piano Concerto No.11 in F is as delicate, elegant and heartrendingly beautiful as you'd expect. Completing the American connection is Barber's passionate Adagio, in its original version for string quartet.
