Alan Gilbert and Emanuel Ax in works by Mozart and Stravinsky
Visitors from New York! Alan Gilbert, music director of the New York Philharmonic, and Emanuel Ax, who has also lived in “the Big Apple” for many years, appear together in Mozart’s graceful yet melancholy Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 22. Plus, Gilbert conducts Stravinsky’s Firebird, whose colourfulness is already conveyed in the titles of the movements: “The enchanted garden”, “Appearance of the guardian monsters”, and “Infernal dance”.
