Additional Dates for this Program

Austria's Till Fellner considers Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 25, which he will perform this month with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra under Manfred Honeck, to be one of the composer’s best. He describes the first movement as one of the “most symphonic” among piano concertos, comparing it to Mozart's writing in his famed Jupiter Symphony. “The second movement, by contrast, is more chamber-music-like,” he said. “There are no trumpets. No timpani. It’s a little bit more intimate.” Read more at CSO Sounds & Stories
