Cappella Andrea Barca

Sir András Schiff conductor and piano



The Cappella Andrea Barca, led by the famous Hungarian musician Sir András Schiff in the double role of pianist and conductor, borrows its name from a mysterious Florentine composer of the 18th century alleged to have met Mozart and to have dedicated himself to the performance of his works. What is genuine, however, is the fact that Schiff, just like the imaginary Barca, has chosen to devote his entire concert to Mozart. His famous Symphony No. 39 (also known as the Swan Song) will be accompanied by two magnificent piano concertos dating from Mozart's Viennese period: No. 15, that the composer himself played and conducted on 24 March 1784, and No. 17, written the same year.
