Mozart produced his Piano Concerto no. 21 during a most exciting period in his life. He was performing, composing, teaching and socialising at a frantic pace, and the sheer density and breadth of this still beautifully measured concerto speaks to this. Bernstein’s Symphonic Dances also stems from a highly creative composing period, and it became an instant triumph of American theatre. The iconic Dances explore the twists and turns of romance and drama and will have you tapping along to exhilarating rhythms.
