George Gershwin Concerto for Piano and Orchestra F major
Jessie Montgomery Records from a Vanishing City
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart Symphony No. 38 D major KV 504 Prager

Jean Baudrillard describes New York as “the city that is important for all other cities”. In this program entitled City Images , the TSOI is devoting itself to two works that deal sonically with the American megacity: George Gershwin’s Piano Concerto in F Major was originally intended to be published under the name New York Piano Concerto . With the work Records from a Vanishing City by the contemporary composer Jessie Montgomery, this is contrasted with an almost 100 years younger examination of our shared hometown. Mozart’s Symphony No. 38, in turn, bears the nickname Prague as a dedication to the metropolis of the Habsburg Monarchy and an important place of work for the composer. Mozart premiered this work during a trip to the city in 1787, from which he returned with the commission to compose Don Giovanni .

The conductor of this 5th symphony concert is Holly Hyun Choe, who made a name for herself with captivating programs that she performed with important orchestras. A particular focus of her artistic work is on supporting female composers. The soloist is Anton Gerzenberg, an up-and-coming pianist who has been pushing his way to the top of the international classical music scene for several years and will, among other things, have a residency at the Vienna Konzerthaus in the coming season.
