Mozart Piano Concerto No. 13, Haydn Symphony No. 96
{{ message.content }}

Mozart and Haydn often show up on the program as a lighter or less serious moment before a heavyweight symphony, or a work of new music. Pianist Sara Ott and the Munich Philharmonic promise something altogether more profound and awe-inspiring, dedicating an entire concert to the two composers. It's worth listening closely. Mozart's Piano Concerto no. 13 is truly unique, with its emphasis on the third movement, its unusual adagio detour and its complex theme development. In the first of his ingenious London Symphonies, Joseph Haydn spins a series of masterful motifs, transforming small ideas into vast structures. In the final movement, a chandelier falls from the ceiling – or at least that's what supposedly happened at the 1791 premiere in the Hannover Square Rooms. The "Miracle" of the work's inofficial title is that nobody was hurt.
