Cadogan Hall is proud to welcome back one of Switzerland’s leading orchestras, the Basel Symphony Orchestra with acclaimed British conductor Ivor Bolton.

They are joined by Swiss pianist Oliver Schnyder for a performance of Mozart’s celebrated Piano Concerto No. 20, requiring an intense and dramatic relationship between soloist and orchestra. This is the Mozart piano concerto that Beethoven admired above all others, figuring prominently in his repertoire as a concert pianist and for which he even wrote cadenzas.

Beethoven is noted to have said Symphony No. 7 was one of his best works at its premiere in Vienna and the drama of this evening’s repertoire continues with this energetic symphony.
