Sometimes music takes a while to sink in. Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 25 wasn’t heard again for nearly 150 years after the composer died; when Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring first hit the concert hall it started a riot. Now both pieces are recognized as groundbreaking and among the greatest masterworks of all time.

This performance is only available as part of a 2020-2021 Classical Series subscription package. Subscribe today at dso.org/classical.

The entire orchestra seemed to float up from Fellner’s fingers right along with the rippling lines and arpeggiated waves of piano. ”
