FRANCESCO PIEMONTESI Piano
and Manze first came
together with the SCO in 2011 and reunited two years ago for memorable Mozart
concerts that led to a bestselling CD. Mozart is their focus here once more –
his graceful, sunny Piano Concerto No 19. The SCO is one of the world’s
greatest Mozart orchestras and it finds an ideal foil in the freshness and
spontaneity of Piemontesi’s playing. Manze adds a Scandinavian treat too:
Stenhammar’s Serenade is nothing less than a love song to the city of Florence.
He would not be drawn on the story behind the music but hinted “… It isn’t just the titles that are Italian.”
