(Elizabeth Leonskaja plays Bach - Christoph helps out too)

This week we're doing Bach and Mendelssohn as performed in concert by the North German Radio Symphony, conducted by Christoph Eschenbach and featuring Elisabeth Leonskaja, piano.

Concert donné le 3 mai 2009 à la Laeiszhalle Musikhalle, Hamburg.

Part One:

Jean-Sébastien Bach (1685-1750)

Concerto pour deux claviers, cordes et basse continue en do mineur Bwv.1060

Félix Mendelssohn (1809-1847)

Symphonie N°5 en ré majeur Op.107, Réformé

Part Two:

Jean-Sébastien Bach (1685-1750)

Concerto pour deux claviers, cordes et basse continue en do majeur Bwv.1061

Félix Mendelssohn (1809-1847)

Symphonie N°4 en la majeur Op.90, Italienne

Elisabeth Leonskaja, Piano

Orchestre symphonique de la NDR

Christoph Eschenbach, Direction & piano

The concert is 90 minutes long and neatly breaks in half, with one Bach concerto and one Mendelssohn symphony in the first part (above) and one Bach concerto and one Mendelssohn symphony in the second part (below).

A nice way to end March.
