Beethoven, Mozart, & Haydn
Rossen Milanov, conductor
Sara Davis Buechner, piano
Haydn: Symphony No. 82 “The Bear”
Mozart: Symphony No. 31 “Paris”
Beethoven: Piano Concerto No. 1
Haydn’s Symphony No. 82 and Mozart’s Symphony No. 31 share a connection to Paris. Haydn’s is the first of the composer’s six “Paris Symphonies,” commissioned by a popular Parisian concert presenter. Mozart’s symphony was written while the 22-year-old composer spent time in the City of Light, and is nicknamed “Paris Symphony.”
Pianist Sara Davis Buechner, “a formidable soloist” (San Francisco Chronicle), appears for the first time with the Columbus Symphony in concerts featuring Beethoven’s delightful and virtuosic first piano concerto.
