Pierre-Laurent Aimard director

Mozart Serenade in C minor, K 388/384a
Beethoven Piano Concerto No 2 in B flat, Op 19

Distinguished pianist and Visiting Professor of Music Pierre-Laurent Aimard makes a welcome return as director and soloist in Beethoven’s Second Piano Concerto. Mozart’s Serenade in C minor for eight wind instruments was written in 1782–83 and is often known as ‘Nacht Musik’. Beethoven’s Second Piano Concerto, written just a few years later, in 1787–89, but not published and performed in its final version until 1795, provided an important display piece for Beethoven as a soloist during his early years in Vienna.
