Auditorium Parco della Musica, Rome - Sala Santa Cecilia
About the Event
Delight in two fast-rising talents combining to present Mozart's final Piano Concerto. Swiss pianist Francesco Piemontesi and Lithuanian conductor Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla bring a work notable for prefiguring the stylistic developments of the nineteenth century to the Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia.
Debussy was another composer to anticipate the future, and experiment early with ideas and styles that would become common in the years to follow. In combination with the Mozart, Debussy's La Mer and 'Preludes', alongside Messiaen's Un Sourire chart the development of music from the eighteenth to twentieth centuries.
