Lahav Shani and Francesco Piemontesi

Berliner Philharmoniker
Lahav Shani

  • Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
    Concerto for Piano and Orchestra No. 27 in B flat major, K. 595

    Francesco Piemontesi piano

  • Robert Schumann
    Symphony No. 1 in B flat major, op. 38 “Spring”

Double debut with two rising stars: Lahav Shani, the successor of Zubin Mehta as music director of the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, and the pianist Francesco Piemontesi, considered one of the most interesting Mozart interpreters of his generation. In these concerts he introduces himself with the last, and musically most mature, piano concerto of the Viennese master. The main symphonic work is Robert Schumann’s First Symphony, which the newly married composer wrote in the euphoric mood of a new beginning. What unites both works is their cheerful, elated, spring-like expression.
