Auerbach is one of the great composers of our time and her oeuvre includes many symphony concertos, operas, ballets, string quartets, violin and piano works and choirs. She has shone in the great halls of the world.
From behind the grand piano, Lera Auerbach herself leads Mozart’s dramatic Piano Concerto No. 20, just as the great master did. This is followed by the Dutch premiere of her own Symphony No. 5, about Adam and Eve with the added title “Paradise Lost“. After a funeral march about lost paradises, harp, chimes and vibraphone evoke an unreal, magical alternate world.
