Theatricality has always been central to Mozart’s music, even in his instrumental works. Such is the case with his brief Symphony No. 26, written when he was 17, and even more so in his masterful Piano Concerto No. 24, composed at age 30, which explores the recesses of the human soul. A virtuoso pianist and eminent pedagogue, Hélène de Montgeroult was also a composer of great talent whose style evolved at the end of the 18th century. While her Piano Concerto No. 1, an adaptation of Viotti violin concertos, is still in a very classical vein, her later works for solo piano are increasingly forward-looking. We are delighted to welcome once again, this time for the opening of our Montreal Season, Québec rising-star pianist now living in London, Élisabeth Pion.
