(Alicia de Larrocha - Grande Dame of the Keyboard)

From a concert relayed by Radio France, a performance by the Barcelona Symphony and Catalonia National Orchestra conducted by Franz-Paul Decker and featuring one of the last concerts given by the legendary Spanish pianist Alicia de Larrocha with that orchestra, recorded in Barcelona on January 25, 2003.

This part of the concert (it was originally 2 hours long) starts with the Symphonic Serenade op. 39 by Erich Wolfgang Korngold and ends with the Mozart Piano Concerto Nr. 23. Here is the rundown from French Radio, including the two pieces time won't permit including (sorry all you Strauss fans!). The announcements are in French.
