Hear American pianist Jonathan Biss play Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 25 in C major.

We’ll also enjoy two reconstructions.

Franz Schubert’s Seventh Symphony only ever existed as a piano score during the composer’s lifetime. Rossini’s Overture to Il Viaggio a Reims was once lost to time, only recently reconstructed by scholars. Maestro Venzago will conduct Richard Dünser’s new, completed arrangement of Schubert’s Symphony No. 7.

Hear more from pianist Jonathan Biss and guest conductor Mario Venzagoin conversation On Record with WXXI’s Julia Figueras.
