Meet the superb Polish pianist and the celebrated Mozart interpreters

INTRODUCTION

Long established in the top rank of great chamber orchestras, Camerata Salzburg was formed in 1952 by Salzburg Festival co-founder Bernhard Paumgartner. Its distinctive style has evolved under a succession of fine artistic leaders including the long-serving Sándor Végh and Sir Roger Norrington. Many of its more than 60 recordings have won top awards, and the Camerata’s interpretations of the Mozart serenades and divertimenti are considered definitive.

Recognised for the intensity and originality of his interpretations, Piotr Anderszewski has been named a Gilmore laureate, an award given every four years to a pianist of exceptional talent. Hailed by The New York Times for his “myriad colourings” and “poetic sensibility”, the pianist returns to the Camerata, directing from the keyboard, in a concert that goes back to the heyday of the First Viennese School.

Israeli violinist Gregory Ahss is the first concertmaster of Camerata Salzburg. As a concertmaster, Ahss has been invited to lead many prestigious orchestras, including the London Symphony Orchestra, the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, the Montreal Symphony Orchestra as well as the Bamberg Symphony, the Bavarian State Orchestra, the Orchestra dell'Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia, and the Orchestra Mozart. His international festival appearances include the Verbier, Gotland, and Israel festivals.

Written in his teens, Mozart’s Divertimento in D major demonstrates his genius in composing music for lighter occasions. His twelfth piano concerto, according to the composer, is intended to be “brilliant, pleasing to the ear and natural”. Written in the same period, Haydn’s D major concerto is one of the composer’s most popular keyboard works. Concluding the programme is Haydn’s majestic Symphony No 49, nicknamed La Passione.

An exquisite evening of chamber music performed with passion, sensitivity and style.
