program:
MOZART Eine kleine Nachtmusik
MOZART Divertimento, K. 131
MOZART Piano Concerto No. 19 in F Major, K. 459

Born in Salzburg in 1756, little ‘Wolfie’ — baptized as Johannes Chrysostomus Wolfgangus Theophilus Mozart — was destined for immortality from the start. Out of the composer’s vast repertoire, we’re delighted to present three favorites. The concert begins with the engaging Eine kleine Nachtmusik, followed by the delightful Divertimento for woodwinds, four French Horns, and strings. We finish with one of Mozart’s magnificent later piano concertos performed by the gifted soloist, Steven Masi. Mozart’s works demand continuous perfection, yet BCO will try three-in-a-row… we must be mad!

Steven Masi Introduction Piano Video Tutorials

Welcome to series one of my brief talks about the many aspects of piano playing.

The series one videos are as follows:

  • An approach that applies the weight of the arm is essential to a beautiful piano sound. Not only is the playing more more varied in texture, but also more supple and free of fatigue and physical pain.
  • “The tender inward of thy hand.” How to practice keeping your hand loose and flexible at the keyboard.
  •  Using Schumann’s Arabesque to learn how to project an upper cantabile line while balancing two supporting lines.
  •  Looking at a Beethoven Sonata to contrast a “from the key” legato touch with a more eighteenth century “pearly” touch.
  •  “The pauses between the notes – ah, that is where the art resides. “ – Artur Schnabel
