Mozart and the piano are the focus in this program, including American pianist Richard Goode in the Piano Concerto no. 23. The concert begins with Charles Ives’s rebellious Second Symphony and closes with Strauss’s equally feisty tone poem Till Eulenspiegel’s Merry Pranks, all conducted by Sir Mark Elder. More Mozart rounds out the broadcast with the concerto for two pianos—with four pianists, a different pair performing each movement—from a concert in 2012.
