Mozart: Symphony No. 31, "Paris"
Ravel: Piano Concerto for the Left Hand
R. Strauss: Till Eulenspiegel's Merry Pranks
This eclectic program juxtaposes piano pyrotechnics with Classical elegance and roguish fun. Mozart’s “Paris” is light and graceful in spirit. Ravel’s concerto, commissioned by a pianist who lost his right arm in World War I, is literally played with just the left hand! Liszt’s Totentanz is a dark and thrilling theme-and-variations for piano and orchestra, and Strauss’ shortest tone poem paints a portrait of a mischievous trickster.
