Newstalgia Mid-Week concert featuring the Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra conducted by Michael Hofstetter and featuring Turkish PianistComposer Fazil Say in a program of music by Mendelssohn, Mozart, Shostakovitch and Gershwin.
Over to Geneva this week for a concert by The Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra conducted by Michael Hofstetter and featuring the Turkish-born pianist/composer Fazil Say playing the Shostakovitch Concerto for Piano and Trumpet as well as Gershwin's Summertime from Porgy and Bess as an encore. The first half of the concert features the Mendelssohn Symphony Nr. 10 and Mozart's Eine Kleine Nachtmusik.
A rather short concert (a little over an hour), but I split it up between two players anyway, with the Mendelssohn and Mozart on the top player and the Shostakovitch and Gershwin on the bottom player.
The concert was recorded by Radio Suisse Romande Espace 2 on December 6, 2010. Announcements are in French, the orchestra is German, the soloist is Turkish and the hall is Swiss. Are we talking International here, or what?
Notes as always:
