(01/02)

Live from the Queen Elizabeth Hall, London

Presented by Suzy Klein

The Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment is joined by a trio of celebrated soloists - cellist Steven Isserlis, pianist Robert Levin and violinist Isabelle Faust - who will each direct the orchestra from their instrument in a concert that looks at what happens when the conductor disappears.

The evening opens with Haydn's 'London' Symphony, the composer's response to the bustle and vibrancy of the city when he visited in 1795. Isabelle Faust is then soloist in Mozart's most popular Violin Concerto before all three soloists come together to perform Beethoven's Triple Concerto.

Mozart: Violin Concerto no.3 in G K.216

Andras Schiff (piano & conductor)

Hungarian-born pianist Andras Schiff pairs arguably Mozart's first great concerto with one of the composer's late sequence of masterpieces. Mozart's friend and mentor Haydn's relationship with London was cemented with a series of twelve so-called 'London' symphonies, written on a grand scale and overflowing with Haydn's trademark invention and wit.
