Orchestra of The Swan May 2018
Triple Concerto for Piano, Violin and Cello
Symphony No.41, ‘Jupiter’
Three monumental works from the heart of the late-18th and early 19th century Viennese Classical tradition come together to form this superb penultimate concert of the series.
The first half pairs the Coriolan Overture, full of Germanic, Beethovenian power and grandeur (reflecting the warrior-like tendencies of its eponymous hero) with the rarely-performed and more lyrical Triple Concerto, with its march-like opening and polonaise finale – the first and by far the best-loved of the 30-plus concertos written for this instrumental combination between 1804 and today.
Closing the evening is a work that needs little or no introduction: Mozart’s last and longest symphony, completed in a fever of creativity in the summer of 1788. Uplifting, regal and joyous, it represents the zenith of the Haydn-Mozart symphonic era and features the famous fanfare-like opening and the masterpiece that is the final movement fugue.
Pre-Concert Talk (6.30pm to 7pm): Presented by conductor, David Curtis.
