Tasmania Symphony Orchestra -Wolfgang and Ralph, Launceston
What do you do with an English Mozartian like Howard Shelley? You have him play to both of his strengths: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Ralph Vaughan Williams. Mozart arrived in Vienna in his mid-20s and set about making a name for himself by composing a steady stream of remarkable concertos, among them the Piano Concerto No 14. Some years later he wrote the concert aria Ch’io mi scordi di te, which includes an elaborate piano part, which he himself played. Vaughan Williams’ Tallis Fantasia and Pastoral Symphony are among the most beautiful works by the most English of English composers. They conjure up a serene world of rolling hills, gentle meadows and sunlight dappled glades.
