It’s been called the concerto in which Mozart truly became Mozart. The composer turned 21 and turned out his Ninth Piano Concerto at around the same time, and the musical result is a miracle of eﬀortless elegance and deep sincerity. The ever-popular French pianist Jean-Eﬄam Bavouzet makes a welcome return to Adelaide with this ‘coming-of-age’ concerto.
Tchaikovsky’s seldom-heard First Symphony more than lives up to its tantalising subtitle, Winter Daydreams. Written by a determined young man in his mid-twenties, this work heralded the beginning of a uniquely Russian symphonic tradition. It has all the hallmarks of Tchaikovsky’s best-loved music: memorable melodies, Russian melancholy, an enchanting waltz and an extravagant ﬁnale.
Rossini’s attention-grabbing overture to William Tell makes a ﬁtting introduction to these two youthful masterpieces.
CODA / Thursday night only: After the concert, pianist Jean-Eﬄam Bavouzet will return to the stage to perform Claude Debussy’s Clair de lune, Nocturne & L’isle joyeuse.
