US PREMIERE OF DIETER AMMANN’S PIANO CONCERTO
On 24 October, Andreas Haefliger gave the US premiere of Dieter Ammann’s Piano Concerto with the Boston Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Susanna Mälkki.
“This is a bear of a work, stuffed to overflowing with an extreme density of virtuosity in both the orchestral and piano writing. The music’s unique voice comes from its particular wedding of brawn and brain, a visceral immediacy of expression, and a cerebral precision of imagination … Haefliger inhabited the solo part, charging through the often percussive writing with formidable technique and unflagging rhythmic energy. His playing seemed genuinely galvanized rather than depleted by the score’s relentless soloistic demands.” Boston Globe
