In a vivacious opening to our 2021 season, Brighton Philharmonic Orchestra’s Music Director Joanna MacGregor directs two of Mozart’s most cherished piano concertos from the keyboard, mixed with the excitement of Britten and Piazzolla.

Mozart wrote his sophisticated Jeunehomme concerto in Salzburg in 1777, when he was just twenty-one: Alfred Brendel calls it ‘one of the greatest wonders of the world.’ It’s paired with another youthful piece, Benjamin Britten’s exuberant Young Apollo, for piano, string quartet and string orchestra – a work that announced Britten as both virtuoso performer and composer.

Three sizzling Piazzolla tangos, showing off the BPO strings, preface Mozart’s perhaps most famous concerto – K467 – with one of his dreamiest slow movements, famously referenced in the 1960s film Elvira Madigan. The wit and crackle of Mozart’s woodwind writing, alongside Piazzolla’s award-winning Libertango, makes this concert a true celebration as we return to Brighton Dome.
