Genre: Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra

Mozart Piano Concerto No. 20

Acclaimed Lise de la Salle is piano soloist and Simone Young conducts Franz Schmidt’s full-bodied, late romantic second symphony.

In 2017, French pianist Lise de la Salle made her jubilant debut at Konserthuset Stockholm with a recital in the Main Hall. Now she returns as soloist with the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra in Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 20, one of his most beloved piano concertos.

We also hear music by the unbelievably talented Franz Schmidt. He was cellist with the Vienna Philharmonic for 15 years. The orchestra’s conductor Gustav Mahler always wanted Schmidt to take the solo parts. His emotional late-romantic music is played far too seldom, but now we have the chance to hear the second symphony.

The Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra is led by Australian Simone Young, a leading interpreter of the German and Austrian repertoires. She was the first woman to conduct the Vienna Philharmonic and she spent many years as artistic director of the Hamburg State Opera and chief music director of the Hamburg Philharmonic. Simone Young has previously conducted the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra in works including Franz Schmidt’s Symphony No 4.
