MOZART Symphony No. 41 in C major K. 551, ‘Jupiter’
BRUCKNER Symphony No. 4 in E-flat major
Michael Alexander Young – conductor
For Trinity Orchestra’s first concert of 2015, under guest conductor Michael Alexander Young, we pair two towering, contrasting symphonies from different periods.
Mozart’s ever-popular masterpiece the ‘Jupiter’ Symphony was the composer’s last symphony, and it is considered to be his most well-crafted and joyous, full of exuberant themes. It was described by the late Claudio Abbado as “one of Mozart’s greatest creations. The finale has all these ideas superimposed, bursting out, one after the other, like fireworks.”
The second work in this concert is the magnificent Symphony No 4, subtitled the ‘Romantic’, by Anton Bruckner. This work is regarded as the composer’s first real masterpiece and its premiere was a triumph, with Bruckner taking a bow after each movement! The symphony is at times pastoral in character and, at other times, expansive and robust, containing moments of great beauty in its slowly unfurling musical themes.
Join us for a pre-concert talk at 7pm through which you can learn more about the evening’s music.
