Boston Symphony Orchestra
Moritz Gnann, conductor
WAGNER — «Siegfried Idyll»
MOZART — Piano Concerto No. 27 in B-flat, K.595 (32 min)
SCHUMANN — Symphony No. 3, Rhenish (33 min)
Acclaimed English pianist Paul Lewis, who has given several memorable performances with the BSO in recent seasons, joins the orchestra for Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 27 in B-flat, K.595, the composer's final work in the genre. BSO Assistant Conductor Moritz Gnann, who conducts the performance, also leads the orchestra in Wagner's «Siegfried Idyll» and Schumann's Symphony No. 3, Rhenish. The symphony's subtitle refers to the mighty Rhine, the river that has inspired so many great works throughout music history, and the piece contains some of Schumann's most colorful and exuberant music, as well as some of his most accomplished writing for full orchestra.
