Piano Concerto No. 23 was Mozart's attempt to win audiences in love with opera and vocal music back to the piano, and did he ever. His goal was to offer up something innovative and new, and this lithe and gracious work definitely fit the bill. See it performed live in one of the world's finest concert venues: the acoustically superb Benaroya Hall in downtown Seattle. The Seattle Symphony will take on this great concerto as well as Transfigured Night, a tone poem for strings, and the folksy, yet elegant, Symphony No. 88 by Haydn. Seattle Symphony Principal Guest Conductor Thomas Dausgaard is at the helm for this program.
