Programme Note

A programme of breakthrough pieces that finds all three composers achieving new heights of creative genius.

If the slow movement of Mozart's Jeunehomme (young man) Piano Concerto came close to breaking the bounds of Classical expression.

Strauss's Don Juan took orchestral virtuosity to its outer limits.

While Humperdinck rewrote the fairy-tale genre with his opera Hänsel und Gretel.
