Gleaming also is Mozart’s Ninth Piano Concerto, Jeunehomme. It is sure to sparkle and move underneath the crafty fingers of the young British master pianist Benjamin Grosvenor. “He makes you sigh with joy, such a rare temperament”, The New York Times writes. The New York press was equally enthusiastic about the contemporary, British composer Anna Clyne. The string section of the South Netherlands Philharmonic opens the concert with the Dutch première of her remarkable composition Within her Arms: about fifteen minutes of fragile sounds of “moving beauty” (The New Yorker) and merely strings. This music has a right to be called the successor of Barber’s wringing Adagio for Strings.
