Melvyn Tan Plays Mozart
Breathe in the beauty of the Italian countryside, the austerity of age-old catholic traditions and the pageantry of Italian life as represented by Mendelssohn’s sunny and vibrant 4th Symphony; his picture postcard description of his travels in Italy during his Grand Tour in the early 19th century.
Mozart’s Italian operas some are some of the most famous in the canon and Don Giovanni is one of the greatest of them all. Seething with intense passion and drama, this overture prefaces Mozart’s uncharacteristically dark Piano Concerto No.20 in D minor.
Celebrated international pianist Melvyn Tan is one of the world’s leading interpreters of Mozart’s keyboard works.
