Mozart Piano Concerto
Kevin Rhodes, Conductor/Soloist: Diane Walsh, Piano
HAYDN Desert Island Overture
MOZART Piano Concert No. 20, K.466, D minor
BEETHOVEN Symphony No. 3, Op. 55, E flat major (Eroica)
These three composing contemporaries--friends, mentors and teachers--shocked and awed their audiences with their wild and wooly works!
- Desert Island Overture, a violent example of classical era tone painting, uses "sturm und drang" (storm and stress) to caue extremes of emotions.
- Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 20, considered his most turbulent and Beethoven-ish works, is performed by Diane Walsh.
- Beethoven's bold Symphony No. 3, The Eroica (Heroic), celebrates the heroism of the individual against tyranny.
