Spotlights for Fazil Say & Amsterdam Sinfonietta

Fazil Say is a Spotlight artist in Het Concertgebouw this season, and the Amsterdam Sinfonietta also has its Spotlight series. Say and Sinfonietta know each other, as they previously performed Mozart's Twelfth Piano Concerto and Say's second piano concerto, Silk Road. Candida Thompson, violinist and artistic director of Amsterdam Sinfonietta, once put it this way: 'Working with a composer is often enormously enlightening and inspiring.' Tonight, the collaboration will continue and deepen.

Mozart meets Say

It is no secret that Fazil Say loves Mozart. He previously recorded his complete piano sonatas. With Amsterdam Sinfonietta, he performs Mozart's First Piano Concerto. Say: 'What this genius wrote at the age of ten is unprecedented. I try to draw attention to his early concerts everywhere, they are not performed enough.' In addition, Mozart's Serenata notturna and the Fantasy in D minor are heard. Say's own work includes The Moving Mansion, a completely different idiom. It is precisely these differences within a program that Fazil Say finds fascinating.
