Boston Philharmonic Plays Mozart and Bruckner
Local Music Scholar Robert Levin Joins the Boston Phil for a Mozart & Bruckner Concert
$25.00 - $100.00
$12.50 - $50.00*
Pianist and Mozart scholar Robert Levin joins the Boston Philharmonic for the first half of this concert. Levin astonished the music world with his masterful completion of Mozart's unfinished Requiem
when he was barely out of his teens, and has gone on to craft a stellar career as a pianist while deepening his international stature as scholar and teacher in the ensuing decades. This local luminary (he teaches at Harvard) will perform one of Mozart's greatest works for the keyboard, the magisterial Piano Concerto in C Major, K. 503. Then it's on to a composer whose symphonies don't often appear on Boston Philharmonic programs: Bruckner. The incomparably lyrical Seventh Symphony has always been the most popular of Bruckner's symphonies, and it's one guaranteed to make a convert out of anyone who thinks they don't like the composer. It's filled with yearning, joy and love -- as well as heartache, in the sublime slow movement, which contains a memorial to Wagner, who died during its composition.

Upon hearing the young Maurizio Pollini play in 1960, Arthur Rubinstein -- no slouch at the keyboard himself -- was moved to declare, "that boy can play the piano better than any of us." Over the next half century, Pollini has gone on to prove Rubinstein right, succeeding him as one of the world's premiere interpreters of Frédéric Chopin. Now this man and his "virtually infallible fingers" (The New York Times) come to Boston Symphony Hall for a program of Chopin and Schumann, which promises to be a powerhouse showcase of this great artist's once-in-a-generation talent.
