BACH: Orchestral Suite No. 3 MENDELSSOHN: Piano Concerto No. 1 MOZART: Symphony No. 41 (“Jupiter”)
Stephen Hough performed Schumann's Träumerei, from Kinderscenen, Op. 15, as an encore.
The boundlessly energetic Andrew Manze has emerged as one of the most stimulating conductors of his generation. In his Mostly Mozart debut, he conducts a program that centers on Mozart’s “Jupiter” Symphony. Stephen Hough, whose work the Guardian has described quite simply as “the most perfect piano playing conceivable,” shines in the crystalline passagework of Mendelssohn’s charming Piano Concerto No. 1.
Performance begins promptly at its scheduled time. There is no late seating.
For Avery Fisher Hall stage seating, all patrons must be seated by 7:55.
This performance is approximately one hour and 40 minutes long, with one intermission.
