Gershwin Concerto in F
Mozart Piano Concerto No.11 in F, K413
Viv McLean piano
We’re delighted to welcome back the virtuoso pianist Viv McLean, a firm favourite in Nailsworth seasons of concerts. In this programme, postponed from 2020, he’ll be performing Gershwin’s Piano Concerto in F, a jazzy, optimistic, richly-textured work packed full of fabulous tunes and toe-tapping rhythms. It was commissioned by Walter Damrosch, conductor of the New York Symphony Orchestra, the day after he had heard the premiere of Rhapsody in Blue. By contrast, Mozart’s Piano Concerto No.11 in F is as delicate, elegant and heartrendingly beautiful as you’d expect. Tickets £10 on the door.
