Inon Barnatan Piano

Mozart Piano Concerto No.20
Mahler Symphony No.5

The 2018/19 Finale brings together two recurring themes from across the Season – symphonic pieces on a grand scale and composers taking new and radical approaches to their work.

Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 20 is the first time the soloist is given completely different entry music to the orchestra, creating an entirely new style of dialogue between piano and orchestra. This dramatic concerto will be performed by the fantastic pianist Inon Barnatan.

“Barnatan elevated all three movements with his impeccable technique, inspired phrasing and gossamer touch… He manifested a brightness of spirit, an alacrity perfectly in tune with the Mozart's quicksilver genius.” (Houston Chronicle)

The concert concludes with Mahler’s Fifth Symphony. A work of intense emotion and epic scope, it is perhaps best known for its glorious fourth movement, which formed part of the soundtrack for the film Death in Venice. Conductor Herbert von Karajan believed that a great performance of Mahler’s Fifth should be a transformative experience and The Guardian has labelled the Rondo-Finale as "the finale to end all finales" – no better conclusion to the 2018/19 Season!
