Till Fellner debuts with the Berlin Philharmoniker

A genuine highlight awaits on 5th, 6th and 7th December of this year’s concert season: Till Fellner will play Mozart’s piano concerto in C major K. 503 alongside the Berliner Philharmoniker and conductor Bernard Haitink.

The concerto is the last of the major Vienna solo concertos Mozart composed for himself. He wrote it during the Christmas season of 1786. Till Fellner is a “man of spirit” as praised by concerti in an article from its December 2015 issue, who, in addition to music, also dedicates himself extensively to literature and cinema (particularly the works of Luis Bunuel). During a sabbatical in 2013, he also studied the art of composition in depth. He explains his interest stating “My intention was to better understand how the works I play are made” (concerti, December 2015). This profound understanding and his astutely crafted approach can be heard clearly in his interpretation of this subtly melancholic piano concerto. In perfect harmony with the orchestra, his impeccable performance has his instrument singing the lyrical passages. He crafts the individual motives with such impeccable perfection that the notes seem as comprehensible as words. Once again, Till Fellner has affirmed his reputation as a master of Viennese classical music.
