Bernard Haitink

PURCELL Chacony in G minor
MOZART Piano Concerto No 20
SCHUBERT Symphony No 9 ('The Great')

Bernard Haitink conductor
Maria João Pires piano
London Symphony Orchestra

Purcell’s Chacony forms an ever-unravelling musical puzzle around the same eight-bar phrase. At the premiere of his
Piano Concerto No 20, Mozart didn’t even have time to play through the last movement because he was transcribing it right up until the start of the concert. Fellow composer Robert Schumann said delightedly to his wife upon discovering Schubert’s Symphony No 9 that he had ‘found a symphony of heavenly length’. Lasting over an hour, its first performance in London was spread over seven days!
