Haydn
Piano Concerto in D Hob.XVIII:11
Shostakovich
Concerto No. 1 in C minor for Piano, Trumpet and Strings Op. 35.

Haydn’s exhilarating Piano Concerto in D is perhaps his most popular work for keyboard. A piece that comes nearest to Mozart in style, it ends with an exuberant Hungarian rondo finale that requires a virtuosic display from the pianist.

Shostakovich’s delightful concerto for piano, trumpet and strings combines wit, energy and lyricism. Full of light-hearted musical jokes parodying themes from Beethoven and Haydn, this brilliant piece features dramatic alternating styles designed to show off the skills of both pianist and trumpeter.
