About This Performance
Mozart, of course, did not know that the sublime B-flat Piano Concerto would be his last, but it did take him nearly three years to complete and is one of his most personal. Bruckner, however, did seem to have some premonition that the Ninth Symphony would be his last. The retrospective Adagio, on which he worked for most of his last two years, includes recollections of themes from three of his earlier works. He hoped to write a finale for the Ninth, but it hardly seems incomplete, floating away serenely with the Adagio after nearly an hour of musical struggle and triumph.
Come for: Final thoughts and grand achievements in Mozart’s last piano concerto and Bruckner’s magnificent unfinished symphony.
