On 5 May, Nicholas continues his Mozart Cycle with the Aurora Orchestra at Kings Place, performing Mozart’s Piano Concerto No.12 with soloist Shai Wosner.
Alongside the Mozart, the programme is an eclectic mix of work centred on the pianist: Ligeti’s virtuosic Piano Concerto, Chopin’s Mazurka in A minor, Phillip Glass’s minimalist landmark Mad Rush, Conlon Nancarrow’s fiendish Study No.7 and Hindemith’s Kammermusik No. 1. Showcasing the piano in various guises, Nicholas and the Aurora Orchestra accompany Wosner in the Mozart, Ligeti and Haydn.
He also gives a pre-concert talk with Aurora Chief Executive John Harte at 6.15pm.
