Olli Mustonen piano
Martyn Brabbins conductor

Bartók’s fiery suite of dances was one of the composer’s first works to achieve international success and was commissioned to mark the fiftieth anniversary of the merging of Buda and Pest into one capital. In the second half of the programme, Olli Mustonen gives the UK Premiere of a concerto written in 1923 for Paul Wittgenstein (who lost his arm during the First World War). As Wittgenstein did not like the work it remained unperformed until its premiere in 2004 by Leon Fleischer with the Berlin Philharmonic/Simon Rattle. The afternoon closes with the ‘Symphony’ that Hindemith extracted from his opera Mathis der Maler, which was also given its first performance in Berlin, but in 1934 just a few months before the Nazis banned his music.
