Henleaze Concert Society: American Connections
A delicious contrast of styles in two piano concertos from different ends of the classical spectrum, by Gershwin and Mozart
About this Event

Barber Adagio for String Quartet

Gershwin Concerto in F

Mozart Piano Concerto No.11 in F, K413

Viv McLean piano

We're delighted to welcome back the virtuoso pianist Viv McLean, a firm favourite in Henleaze Concert Society's seasons of concerts. In this programme, postponed from 2020, he'll be performing Gershwin's Piano Concerto in F, a jazzy, optimistic, richly-textured work packed full of fabulous tunes and toe-tapping rhythms. It was commissioned by Walter Damrosch, conductor of the New York Symphony Orchestra, the day after he had heard the premiere of Rhapsody in Blue. By contrast, Mozart's Piano Concerto No.11 in F is as delicate, elegant and heartrendingly beautiful as you'd expect. Completing the American connection is Barber's passionate Adagio, in its original version for string quartet.
