Johann Christian Bach studied in Italy and became composer to the King’s Theatre in London. His music was a formative influence on the development of the Classical style.
Throughout Mozart’s music, the key of D minor evokes shadowy supernatural forces, not least in Piano Concerto No. 20. It is not until the third movement that a surprise modulation brings the music to a celebratory conclusion. Beethoven’s Symphony No. 1 is widely recognised as following paths trodden by Haydn and Mozart, yet shows the individuality that came to define his evolution of the Classical style into the Romantic.
Ariel Lanyi won the Bronze Medal at the Leeds International Piano Competition in 2021 and has performed with orchestras in the UK, Israel and the US. In 2022 he undertook a solo tour of Argentina and this season he performs in London, Germany, Madrid, Australia, the US and Colombia.
