Between the unparalleled classical genius of Mozart and Haydn and a stupendous lineup of famed works, an evening full of pure enjoyment is guaranteed for all listeners. Haydn’s captivating yet unpredictable Symphony “No. 99” shares the stage with two significant works by Mozart, the sophisticated “Jeunehomme” Concerto, and the beloved “Eine kleine Nachtmusik.”
Ronald Brautigam has rightfully claimed his reputation as one of Holland’s most respected musicians, performing regularly with leading orchestras like the London Philharmonic, Hong Kong Philharmonic, Royal Concertgebouw, among others. Mr. Brautigam has recorded over 60 works with the Swedish label BIS, including the complete works of Mozart and Haydn, and the 15-CD Beethoven cycle, both on fortepiano. Mr. Brautigam’s last appearance with the Utah Symphony was in November of 2013, when he performed Beethoven’s Third Piano Concerto.
