  1. Concerto for Piano and Orchestra No 25 in C K 503 - Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

London Mozart Players' October Piano Explored concert focuses on a magnificent work that will fully demonstrate Howard Shelley’s lifelong affinity with Mozart. Mozart’s C major piano concerto is the longest and one of the most magisterial of his piano concertos. The grand opening has a rugged strength worthy of Beethoven – certainly Beethoven references this work in his own Fourth Piano Concerto, and the famous motif of his Fifth Symphony can also be heard. The slow movement is lyrical and touching and leads into an animated finale that recalls the gavotte themes from Idomeneo and his Concerto for Flute and Harp. This incredible work was just one of twelve superb concertos Mozart wrote in a three-year period.

Howard will give an insightful introduction to the work, giving the context of its composition as well as an exploration of the many themes and subjects that the concerto embraces. It’s simply the perfect way to spend a lunch hour!
