Renowned baroque conductor Nicholas McGegan returns to the Benaroya Hall stage to conduct a program featuring J.S. Bach's delightful Orchestral Suite No. 1 and Schubert's Fifth Symphony. Though Schubert was writing a full century after Bach, the baroque influence carries through. Schubert's Symphony No. 5 was strongly influenced by Mozart, who was in turn greatly influenced by Bach.
Few pianists are as immersed in the music of Mozart as Jean-Efflam Bavouzet, whose multi-year project to record Mozart’s complete piano concertos makes him an expert in these graceful and inventive keyboard works. His classical expertise makes him the perfect artist to bring to life Mozart’s “Jeunehomme” Piano Concerto and also the Second Piano concerto by a young Beethoven.
