Mozart Piano Concerto No 20 in D minor Mahler Symphony No 7 BBC Symphony Orchestra Jiří Bělohlávek conductor Jan Lisiecki piano
Mozart the Great Romantic? That's how he was described in the 19th century, and anyone hearing the stormy Piano Concerto No 20 will see why. Next to that, parts of Mahler's Seventh Symphony seem sunny and light-hearted. But there are shadowy moments too, a Scherzo that's like wind through trees at night, and at the beginning the strangest funeral march ever penned.
From the complete Sibelius Symphonies, to Dvorak’s neglected masterpiece The Jacobin and thrilling premieres by today’s most exciting composers, there is something for everyone in the BBC Symphony Orchestra’s 2011-12 season. Find out more in our special season preview film:
