This October, the Singapore Symphony Orchestra welcomes German pianist-conductor Lars Vogt as he leads the orchestra in a programme lineup inspired by Europe’s musical capital – Vienna.

Vogt will act as both conductor and piano soloist in Mozart’s joyous Piano Concerto No. 21, nicknamed “Elvira Madigan” after the 1967 Swedish classic film of the same name as it features the concerto’s elegant slow movement — music of overarching beauty, tinted by nostalgia, melancholy and longing. The remainder of the programme will comprise of opener Webern’s Langsamer Satz, a gentle lovesong on string choir inspired by the composer’s love for his future wife, and concludes with Schumann’s stately and cleverly designed Symphony No. 2.

Lars Vogt was previously in Singapore for a performance at the 22nd Singapore International Piano Festival in 2015, and on 18th October, will be conducting a Piano Masterclass at the Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music.

Lars Vogt: Mozart’s Piano Concerto 21 plays at the Victoria Concert Hall Singapore Turf Club Parade Ring on 19th and 20th October 2018. Tickets available from SISTIC
