Bartók and Mozart with Sebastian Knauer in Heilbronn, Ulm and Ludwigsburg
For the first time in its over 50 year history, the Württemberg Chamber Orchestra Heilbronn performed “Music for Strings, Percussion and Celesta” by Béla Bartók. This masterpiece was combined with two brilliant creations of the First Viennese School: Mozart’s Piano Concerto K. 595 (with soloist Sebastian Knauer) and the “Jupiter”-Symphony. The reviewer from the “Heilbronner Stimme” hailed the evening as a “glorious moment of the Classic Modernism”. The “Augsburger Allgemeine” spoke of the same program performance in the second WCO subscription series in Ulm likewise with the highest of praises: “With a crystalline temperament, the orchestra, inspired by its omnipresent conductor, steered Mozart’s last symphony to concertante Olympus. How… Gazarian incorporated the pulsating fugato of the “Allegro molto” into the well-awakened overall sound is a mastery of dynamic arrangement.” Read more from the reviews in the link „Press“.
