This year, the Vienna Philharmonic – for Rolando Villazón “one of the best ‘original’ Mozart orchestras of all time” – begins a double series planned to last until the 2023 Mozart Week. It consists of the last ten major symphonies and piano concertos – and “it is in the piano concertos”, says Villazón, “that Mozart’s soul is found”. Daniel Barenboim will be the orchestra’s main, though not exclusive, partner. For two of the three concerts in 2020, he will take his place on the rostrum or at the piano – and the Philharmonic wind-players will display their prowess in the “Gran Partita”. In each third concert, a young star will demonstrate expertise in Mozart interpretation – this time the internationally acclaimed Lahav Shani, performing as both pianist and conductor.
