- Mozart Piano Concerto No. 15 in B-flat major
- Uri Caine Concerto for Two Pianos and Chamber Orchestra (World Premiere) Commissioned by Sound Investment
- Mozart Piano Concerto No. 22 in E-flat major
Continue your journey with two concertos Mozart wrote when he was probably at his happiest. No. 15 dates from 1784 and is historical for introducing the woodwinds in a prominent role to the genre; no. 22 was premiered by Mozart on December 16, 1785, the same day he completed it. Our concert begins with a world premiere by another innovator, LACO composer-in-residence Uri Caine. “[Caine] is ferociously versatile…at home in jazz but fluent in many musical languages and capable of juxtaposing them in a virtuoso collage,â€? writes The New York Times. Mozart would surely approve!
“Uri uses a variety of classical and jazz forms to create sound experiences that are alternately tender, moving passionate, delicate, stimulating, challenging and disturbing. Respectful to all genres, he nonetheless questions and challenges each one.â€? – All About Jazz
