Two  musical retellings of the story of the Babylonian king Belshazzar are included in the first of this summer’s feast of choral works. Celebrated German pianist Lars Vogt is soloist in the first of six late great Mozart piano concertos, and British composer Gary Carpenter spearheads the 32 premieres this season .
