Bertrand Chamayou piano

BACH Orchestral Suite No. 3

MOZART Piano Concerto No. 23, K. 488

MOZART Symphony No. 41, Jupiter, K. 551

 

 

Conductor Philippe Herreweghe, celebrated for his interpretations of Bach’s music, brings a special performance of Bach’s elegant Orchestral Suite No. 3 to the Corn Exchange stage. Bertrand Chamayou plays one of Mozart’s finest works for piano and orchestra, the radiant Concerto No. 23, and the programme concludes with his extraordinary Jupiter Symphony. This was the last symphony Mozart ever wrote, and the most ambitious, ending with a thrilling finale that takes contrapuntal writing to new heights in a dazzling five-part fugue.

 

 

 

Priority booking opens to Friends of the Philharmonia Orchestra at 10am on Tuesday 17 April. Become a friend of the orchestra here and access priority booking.
