About This Performance
Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 20 has been held in such high regard that Beethoven, Brahms, Hummel, Busoni and Clara Schumann all wrote cadenzas for this D-minor masterpiece. We have the great pleasure of hearing it performed by Grammy winner Richard Goode, who recorded it as part of his highly celebrated series with the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra.
One of the very few pieces inspired by chapters of a philosophical treatise (by Friedrich Nietzsche), Strauss’ Also sprach Zarathustra is best known for its glorious opening fanfare.
