Prom 71: Staatskapelle Dresden, Christian Thielemann & Daniil Trifonov - Mozart and Bruckner

Summary

The Staatskapelle Dresden, chief conductor Christian Thielemann and pianist Daniil Trifonov perform Mozart's Piano Concerto No 21 and Bruckner's Third Symphony. In the first of two Proms in which Christian Thielemann displays his credentials as an interpreter of the Austro-German repertoire, he focuses on Bruckner's Third Symphony, the composer's symphonic monument to his idol Wagner - a monolithic memorial that feels at the same time intimate and personal. Before that, one of the most sought-after of today's pianists, Daniil Trifonov, is the soloist in Mozart's Piano Concerto No 21 - whose ebullient finale contrasts with the seraphic slow movement made famous by the 1967 film Elvira Madigan.
