Ryan Wigglesworth conductor / piano
Paul Lewis piano
Mozart Piano Concerto No.10 for two pianos
Beethoven Piano Concerto No.3
Elgar Enigma Variations
Friends from the UK take to the stage to share music across two keyboards. Acclaimed British pianist Paul Lewis and conductor/composer Ryan Wigglesworth join forces for Mozart’s brilliant double concerto in E flat. With racing scales, tinkling trills and a glorious, expressive slow movement, this is one of Mozart’s most engaging concertos. Then Paul Lewis performs Beethoven’s Third Piano Concerto, considered one of the composer’s most beautiful works for piano and orchestra.
Elgar dedicated his splendid Enigma Variations “to my friends pictured within,” adding initials to each variation and in some cases wittily suggesting the dedicatee’s personality. All the variations rotate around the noble ninth variation, Nimrod, Elgar’s heartfelt homage to his publisher and confidante, August Jaeger. He never divulged the origin of his mysterious theme, and some have said that it’s not a melody at all but simply friendship itself.
*Please note: Ryan Wigglesworth’s Mozart Variations will no longer be performed at this concert as originally scheduled.
