Hear the Chamber Orchestra of Europe, conducted by Bernard Haitink, perform an evening of works by Schubert and Mozart. This Prom was recorded at the Royal Albert Hall.

Haitink, a seasoned Mozartian and Schubertian at age 86, leads this pan-European ensemble in two works by Schubert: the Italianate Overture in C Major, and the big-boned Ninth Symphony, aptly subtitled, "Great." In between, Portuguese pianist Maria João Pires brings her animated approach to Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 23 in A major, K488.

Program:

Schubert: Overture in C major 'In the Italian Style', D 591
Mozart: Piano Concerto No. 23 in A major, K488
Schubert: Symphony No. 9 in C major 'Great', D 944

  • Maria João Pires, piano
