Mozart           Overture, La clemenza di Tito
Mozart           Violin Concerto No 4 in D, K218 Berg Lyric Suite
Beethoven    Piano Concerto No 5 ‘Emperor’

Alexander Janiczek     Director/Violin
Llyr Williams                Piano

A majestic close to the acclaimed two-year journey Llyr Williams and Alexander Janiczek have been taking with the SCO through the concertos of Mozart and Beethoven. ‘Emperor’ was never Beethoven’s title, but it well becomes such a grand, imposing work: tragically, it is the only one of his piano concertos that Beethoven never played.

His deafness made it impossible. In contrast, Mozart’s youthful Violin Concerto is pure sunshine. Between them lies “… a small monument to a great love”. Berg’s hyper- Romantic Lyric Suite conceals in its notes the story of a passionate love affair.

An outstanding night in Aberdeen of Mozart and Beethoven(Berg perhaps an acquired taste)that had words of high praise and delight ringing around the aisles along with great appreciation of what we had just heard.
