Ingrid Fliter Plays Mozart

Fri Dec 3 - Sat Dec 4, 2021

Orchestra Hall

~2 hrs with a 20 min intermission

Richard Strauss’ Ein Heldenleben (A Hero’s Life) tells of thrilling adventures, romance, adversaries, and ultimate fulfillment. We welcome Danish conductor Thomas Søndergård to the podium for his Minnesota Orchestra debut and Argentinian pianist Ingrid Fliter for her return in Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 23. Up first, though, is Samuel Coleridge-Taylor’s Ballade for Orchestra, his very first commissioned work and the piece that set him on track to be one of the finest composers at the turn of the 20th century.

A Few Things to Know

  1. Ingrid Fliter recently opened an Etsy shop to sell her original paintings that are created from a place of improvisation and intuition; she says that through painting, “a magical world unleashed in front of my eyes.”
  2. Mozart often scored his concertos and symphonies without clarinets, but in the Piano Concerto No. 23, he swapped the oboes for clarinets to darken the overall tone.
