In a nod to women in classical music, RBC Assistant Conductor Naomi Woo leads the WSO at the podium and at the piano with a Piano Concerto by Marianne von Martinez.
Martinez was a child prodigy whose harpsichord performance practice was compared to the style of Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach, and whose compositions were so well regarded in her time that some scholars have suggested that Mozart modelled one of his masses after her own.
French composer and pianist Louise Farrenc battled for equality and was driven to make her tomorrow better than today. Encouraged by Clementi and Hummel, Hector Berlioz was a big fan of her overtures but it was her chamber music that made the biggest impact. The evening begins with a string quartet by Franz Joseph Haydn.
This concert was originally scheduled for March 12 & 13, 2021.
