"Concerto Evening" on IPR Classical

Tonight from 5-9 PM you can hear concertos by Mozart, Beethoven, Schumann, Bach, and Vivaldi, in live concert performances by some of today's great soloists. First, during Performance Today, Dame Mitsuko Uchida performs Mozart's radiant Piano Concerto no. 23 in A, conducting the Cleveland Orchestra from the keyboard. Then Argentine legend Martha Argerich solos in Beethoven's Piano Concerto no. 2 and Schumann's Piano Concerto. Finally, on SymphonyCast, Margaret Batjer leads the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra in a program that includes a Vivaldi Cello Concerto and two Bach concerto reconstructions - the Oboe d'amore concerto in A major and the Concerto for Three Violins, BWV 1064.
