Orion Weiss and Alessio Bax, two brilliant pianists, team up to perform Mozart's concerto, a work filled with sparkling repartee as the two instruments vie with each other, then unite to suggest "some transfigured, heavenly barrel-organ." They follow with Saint-Saëns' Carnival, also with double piano and surely one of the most entertaining classical works ever written. In the second half of our program the mood changes, as vocal soloists and chorus join the orchestra in Mozart's sublime Requiem.
