Kit Armstrong Piano

    Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

    • Symphony E flat major KV 16
    • Piano concerto in G major KV 453

    Alfred Schnittke

    • »Moz-Art à la Haydn«

    Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

    • Symphonie in g minor, K. 183

    Later generations of composers have always taken inspiration from the music of Mozart. As, for example, Alfred Schnittke, whose »Moz-Art à la Haydn« was conceived as a »Musical game«. Born in Los Angeles, Kit Armstrong was once described by Alfred Brendel as a »child prodigy« and »the greatest Musical talent I have ever encountered«. In Dresden the American wunderkind will now meet the Salzburg wunderkind, accompanied by the young Israeli conductor Omer Meir Wellber.
