About

Mozart Piano Concerto No. 14 in E flat, K449 (chamber version)

Ligeti String Quartet No. 1 Metamorphoses nocturnes

Schubert Piano Quintet in A, D667 Trout

Shai Wosner piano

Nicholas Collon conductor

Aurora Orchestra

Following a critically-acclaimed debut with Aurora at Kings Place last year, the versatile Shai Wosner returns for an eclectic programme which includes one of the greatest masterpieces in the canon of chamber music.

Be swept away by the boundless energy of Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 14 under Wosner's sensitive and exhilarating playing. Then, in a different vein, experience the visceral intensity of Ligeti's extraordinary first string quartet that unfolds as one movement seamlessly shifting through contrasting characters and moods. The programme concludes with basking in the sunlit bliss of Schubert's much-loved 'Trout' quintet, a chamber work that bubbles with charm and delight, and directly quotes his song Die Forelle (The Trout).

In a clear little brook

In merry haste

A capricious trout

Shot past like an arrow.

- Christian Friedrich Daniel Schubart, Die Forelle
