Inspired by Ludwig van Beethoven, Unsuk Chin’s Subito con Forza pronounces itself forcefully and without reservation, painting with the bold brush strokes of the avant-garde. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 21, performed by Spanish pianist Javier Perianes, follows with its searching melodies and emotional complexity. Then, György Ligeti’s charming Concert Românesc offers an autobiographical snapshot of Ligeti’s childhood in Transylvania. The program, led by Spanish conductor Gustavo Gimeno, closes with Felix Mendelssohn’s ebullient Italian Symphony.
