Franz Welser-Möst conducts Mozart and Strauss : live at the Carnegie Hall( Visual )

1 edition published in 2006 in Italian and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mozart, the pianist Leiv Ove Andsnes and the Cleveland Orchestra celebrate in Carnegie Hall. The opening of the season at Carnegie Hall, one of the most prestigious concert halls in the world, is an excuse each year for a musical event that is among one of the most exclusive in the Big Apple. A different orchestra is chosen each year and the concert is a showcase for the talents that compose it. In 2006, the lucky winner was the Cleveland Orchestra conducted by the Austrian conductor Franz Welser-Möst who has been its musical director since 2002 (his contract has been extended until 2018). The programme was festive, as befits such an event: polkas and waltzes by Johann Strauss the younger preceded and followed the Concerto No. 17, K453, performed by Norwegian pianist Leiv Ove Andsnes, who is familiar with this piece which he has recorded. He combined natural ease and mastery with great sensitivity (the andante). The German soprano Dorothea Röschmann replaced that evening at the last minute the baritone Thomas Quasthoff, who was suffering from an inflammation of the vocal chords. Used to the "classic" repertoire (she sings in many festivals of ancient music, namely with René Jacobs), she brilliantly sang airs by Mozart before an enchanted audience
