Details

Pianist Imogen Cooper makes her debut with the Aurora Orchestra as it begins the second season of its five-year journey through Mozart’s piano concertos with what is widely considered to be the twenty one year-old composer’s first great masterpiece: the so-called ‘Jeunehomme’ concerto.
Imogen Cooper appears as soloist for this watershed work, marking Mozart’s single greatest single leap forward on the path to full maturity – a piece which Alfred Brendel has described as nothing short of "a wonder of the world".

Alongside Mozart’s joyful and exuberant music, the orchestra performs two works by composers who were also entering their creative prime, but for whom the creative process was marked by struggle. Beethoven’s second symphony was penned during the onset of deafness, amid the realisation that it would be incurable. The limpid beauty of Schumann’s Six Canonic Studies, meanwhile, belies a personal context of depression and obsession: originally written for organ and later adapted by Debussy for two pianos, these ravishing studies are heard here for the first time in a new arrangement for chamber orchestra by Robin Holloway.

Programme:
Schumann - Six Canonic Studies [world premiere] (arr. Debussy/Holloway) Mozart - Piano Concerto No. 9 in E-flat, K271 Jeunehomme Beethoven - Symphony No. 2 in D, Op. 36

"The qualities that make Cooper quite simply one of the finest pianists this country has produced make her perfect for Mozart duty" - Gramophone

"Cooper remains one of the sovereign pianists: everything she touches exudes integrity... the highest understanding coupled with a melting beauty of sound" - International Piano Magazine
