The Lyric Concert with Paul Herriott Tuesday 9 July 2013
Join Paul Herriott for a special Lyric Concert from the Royal Albert Hall in London, as part of this year's Proms festival. The legendary Daniel Barenboim and his Staatskapelle Berlin perform Mozart's Piano Concerto No.24, paired with the Bruckner 'Romantic' Symphony No.4'. "We shall never be able to do anything like that," proclaimed Beethoven when he heard Mozart’s dramatic, minor-key Piano Concerto No. 24.
As with Mozart in his concertos, with each of Bruckner’s symphonies came a keener focus of vision and honing of craft. With the Fourth, Bruckner really came of age, bringing a newfound confidence in the glowing first movement, while its statuesque Andante is a moving premonition of loss.
