Beethoven   Piano Concerto no. 2
Mahler          Symphony no. 1

David Fray                  piano
Esa-Pekka Salonen

Beethoven’s Piano Concerto no. 2 shows the young composer breaking away from Mozart’s model into his own world of emotion, with a tender slow movement and mischievous and sprightly finale.

Mahler’s first symphony proceeds from a magical, hushed opening, via a folk-dance second movement and strange, disconcerting funeral march, to a jubilant finale, and shows the twenty-four year old composer excitedly extending the range of orchestral expression.
