Toshio Hosokawa Lotus Under the Moonlight ‘Hommage à Mozart’ (2006)
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart Konzert Nr. 23 A-Dur KV 488 - für Klavier und Orchester
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart Le nozze di Figaro: Overture


In the Vienna of 1786, Mozart writes works that continue to inspire us centuries later: so it was that Toshio Hosokawa wrote Lotus Under the Moonlight in 2006 as an homage to Mozart and his Piano Concerto No. 23.

And he is not the only fan! For the piano concerto is a beautiful work: a scintillating dialogue between the piano and the orchestra, brisk and melancholic in turns, and a rollicking finale.

The status of audience favourite is well deserved.
