One of the ‘Wonders of the World’ is how the famous concert pianist Alfred Brendel described Mozart’s 9th Piano Concerto.
And now, international pianist Bobby Chen returns to Bath to perform this much loved work with the Brandon Hill Chamber Orchestra in Classical Greats on 21 October.

Bath Recitals also has a fantastic new venue for this prestigious concert. St Swithin’s Church on the Paragon is one of Bath’s secret gems.
DID YOU KNOW?
The present church was built in 1777 by John Palmer – but (rather surprisingly) is the ONLY 18th century church in the city.
Alongside music by Arne (think Rule Britania!) and Bach’s youngest son JC, the Classical Greats programme will also feature Haydn’s Le Matin, composed in 1761 when Prince Paul II Anton Esterházy gave him the challenge of writing music based on different times of the day.
