Irish Chamber Orchestra

Kristian Bezuidenhout Director/Piano

Purcell Chacony in G minor

Mozart Piano Concerto No.18 in B flat major, K.456 

Gluck Dance of the Furies (Orfeo ed Euridice)

Mozart Piano Concerto No.25 in C major, K.503 

Henry Purcell’s expressive Chacony in G minor is a fine example of Restoration theatre music performed in the 1600’s.  Kristian Bezuidenhout showcases two of Mozart’s finest piano concerti.  His Piano Concerto No. 18 was written for the blind virtuoso Maria Theresia Paradis and demonstrates a thrilling interplay between instruments.  His sublime Concerto No. 25 boldly breaks barriers of Mozart’s highly stylized form, paving the way for incredible variety, diversity, and originality.  In between enjoy a dramatic and joyful romp in Gluck’s Dance of the Furies.
