A wonderful coffee concert with the Keller Quartet with Angela Hewitt in the Gminor quartet
An inspired start reminding me of the great morning concerts in Salzburg where I heard for the first time Mozart K467 with Serkin and Ormandy in a morning concert too.
Angela will play K466 D minor at 7.30 tonight (6.30 Uk time)in the closing concert
More wonderful performances of Mozart from Budapest.
A brilliant performance of Mozart D minor concerto full of subtle phrasing and dynamic power for one of Mozart’s darkest and most haunting of concertos.The sublime radiance of genius shining through as the clouds pass and Mozart’s purity and simplicity of spirit are revealed.As Angela so rightly said the unclouded clarity of Bach is exactly the same sound world needed for Mozart as she showed us so eloquently tonight.Beethoven nowhere in sight even,as she chose other cadenzas where Mozart had left none,and Beethoven barely a footprint.
Thanks, Chris! Nice to see the on-screen shots! Ah, but Beethoven was present: in the last 3 bars of the cadenza of the first movement which otherwise is by Paul Badura-Skoda. PB-S included them in his cadenza (recognising how wonderful that join is into the final tutti). The third movement cadenza is by my former teacher, Jean-Paul Sevilla. He wrote it back in 1959 and gave it to me in 1973 when I learned this piece at the age of 15. It’s fantastic. I love how it keeps the action going, doesn’t let up on the energy at that crucial point in the drama. That’s not a point for wandering off on a tangent….no…..Angela Hewitt
