Tchaikovsky: Suite No. 4 in G Major, Op. 61 “Mozartiana”
Mozart crafted his finely detailed and powerful Paris Symphony as a work to show off the qualities of an orchestra in technique and discipline. Daniel Hsu, 2017 Van Cliburn International Piano Competition Bronze Medalist, dazzles in Saint-Saëns’ virtuosic Second Piano Concerto, a masterpiece written in just 17 days. With its romantic ardour and overlapping eras, Tchaikovsky’s Suite No. 4 “Mozartiana” is an affectionate tribute to the composer who had been his life-long model.
