Chamber Orchestra: Mozart, Bizet & Brian Ganz
Piotr Gajewski, Conductor
Brian Ganz, piano
MOZART Symphony No. 35, “Haffner”
MOZART Piano Concerto No. 23, K.488
BIZET Symphony No. 1
Bizet’s Symphony No. 1, commonly known as “Symphony in C,” was a student assignment from Bizet’s time at the Paris Conservatoire. The work of the seventeen-year-old youngster was largely forgotten until 1935 when it surfaced in the dusty archives of the Conservatoire library. Mozart’s famous “Haffner” Symphony and the Piano Concerto No. 23 suffered no such neglect as both are perennial concert favorites.
