Nelsons conducts Barber, Mozart & Schumann – with Daniil Trifonov

Gewandhausorchester

87 Min

Among Andris Nelsons's predecessors as Gewandhauskapellmeister in Leipzig was Felix Mendelssohn, who conducted the premiere of Schumann's "Spring" Symphony with the orchestra in 1841. This lively and imaginative work forms the final part of this concert, which still had to take place without an audience. With its mood of optimism, the symphony evoked hope for a pandemic-free spring after the long Corona winter. Samuel Barber's elegiac Adagio for Strings is followed by Mozart's 25th Piano Concerto, whose sparkling elegance and formal imagination finds a subtle and confident interpreter in pianist Daniil Trifonov, who receives ideally elegant support from the Gewandhausorchester.
