Performing with
Alexander Melnikov, piano
Copenhagen Philharmonic

Mozart: Piano Concerto No. 23
Bruckner: Symphony No. 7

The Danish master conductor Thomas Dausgaard is in charge of Copenhagen Phil and the piano virtuoso Alexander Melnikov. On the music stands are Bruckner’s unique 7th symphony – and an old familiar melody from Matador .

Russian pianist Alexander Melnikov is a soloist in a piano concerto that everyone who has seen Matador knows: The slow and beautiful movement from Mozart’s piano concerto, which follows the shadow aunt and piano teacher Elisabeth Friis throughout the series – and not without reason. Here, Mozart is at the height of his career as a composing pianist in 1780s Vienna with the almost unreal surplus to write themes that go straight to the heart.

The Danish world conductor Thomas Dausgaard is currently, among other things. chief conductor of the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra and 1st guest conductor of the Seattle Symphony Orchestra. He visits Copenhagen Phil with Bruckner’s majestic Seventh Symphony. Here, Bruckner unfolds the entire large symphony orchestra in long stretches of almost supernaturally beautiful intensity and with completely overwhelming highlights along the way – while Bruckner manages to create completely magical moments of intimate, lyrical atmosphere. A symphonic experience in the very large format – and on the occasion of the evening amplified by students at the Royal Danish Conservatory of Music.
