WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Part of the BBC Proms.
Former BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist Igor Levit made his Proms debut at a Cadogan Hall chamber music recital in 2012. Now he makes his Proms concerto debut in Mozart's poignantly delicate No. 27, completing this year's series of late great Mozart piano concertos. Delicacy gives way to orchestral weight and heft in Bruckner's popular Seventh Symphony, its beautiful Adagio a tribute to Wagner, and a finale that, according to composer Robert Simpson, 'blends solemnity and humour in festive grandeur'.
