Claudio Abbado, Maurizio Pollini and Anna Prohaska

Claudio Abbado and Maurizio Pollini: one of the great artistic friendships of classical music. In this concert, they perform Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 17. A second Mozart soloist is the soprano Anna Prohaska, who is also heard in Alban Berg’s Symphonic Pieces from Lulu. The concert closes with the Adagio from Mahler’s Tenth Symphony: a manifestation of the hopelessness and a farewell to life.
