Robert Levin in Residence: Mozart Piano Concertos
Mozart Piano Concerto No 12 in A major K 414
Mozart Piano Concerto No 14 in E flat major K 449
Pianist Robert Levin, one of the world’s leading classical improvisation and Mozart scholars and performers, providing a crucial contribution to our understanding of the creative approach to performance that was guiding European Art Music-making up until the 20th century.
As a world-class performer, he regularly appears with leading orchestras and conductors in major music centres around the globe.
Levin’s performances of Mozart piano concertos are well known for their virtuosic and adventurous nature, and for this special concert he will be joined by five Guildhall string players to perform K. 414 in A major and K. 449 in E flat major, proposed by Mozart himself for piano and string quartet.
Professor Levin will revive the tradition of connecting works in two different tonalities by improvising a modulating prelude between the two concertos. All cadenzas, repeats, eingangs and fermata points will also be extemporised, making this a unique and fascinating performance.
