Mozart’s Fortepiano

Loved by players and audiences alike, Kristian Bezuidenhout is part of the Brandenburg family.

To honour this connection, and Bezuidenhout’s continued ascendency in the music world, Paul Dyer took great pleasure in offering him the opportunity to guest direct and conduct a concert series in 2015.

Family, both literal and musical, play an important role in the program Bezuidenhout has devised, starting with two wonderful sinfonias by J.S. Bach’s oldest and youngest children: the more traditional W.F. Bach, who worked in the style of his father; and the more contemporary J.C. Bach – whose compositions had a direct influence on Mozart’s concerto style.

Directing the Brandenburg from his beloved fortepiano, Bezuidenhout will perform perhaps the finest of Mozart’s keyboard concertos – the dramatic Piano concerto in d minor. Following this, the delicate joy of the Andante for Flute, featuring the Orchestra’s own principal flute, Melissa Farrow. And as a fitting climax for such a brilliant young musician as Kristian, the lilting and exuberant “Linz” symphony – written in only a few days, yet full of depth and sophistication.
