Britten Four Sea Interludes from 'Peter Grimes'
Mozart Piano Concerto No 17, K453
Beethoven Symphony No 7

Bernard Haitink conductor
Maria João Pires piano
London Symphony Orchestra

Taken from his opera Peter Grimes, Britten’s ‘Four Sea Interludes’ paint a portrait of the sea from the eerie calm of dawn to the overwhelming turbulence of the final storm. Mozart wrote his Piano Concerto No 17 for one of his most accomplished students, Barbara (‘Babette’) von Ployer and famously taught his pet starling to sing back the variation-theme of the finale. Beethoven’s Symphony No 7 plays out an increasing tension between dynamic, driving rhythms and static bass-note drones which fellow composer Richard Wagner hailed as ‘the apotheosis of the dance’.

Change of programme
At the request of the soloist the concerto being performed will now be Mozart’s Piano Concerto No 17 rather than Piano Concerto No 21 as advertised when booking first opened.
