Mozart’s Piano Concerto in D Minor is one of his few works written in a minor key and represents his stormiest concerto. The piece was the first of six stunning pieces composed for piano and orchestra between 1785 and 1786. It was regarded by 19th century critics as Beethoven-like, the highest level of praise during the period- and a moody epoch to the Romantic Era. The piece is perfectly paired with Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 5, a work that demonstrates why Tchaikovsky was one of the Romantic Era’s finest composers. First Steinway artist in the Middle East Sonja Park joins Andreas Weiser and the Philharmonic for this spectacular concert.
