The Sydney Symphony Orchestra plays Mozart
MOZART Horn Concerto No.3, K447
R STRAUSS arr. Benedict Capriccio: Prelude
MOZART Symphony No.36 (Linz)
Andrew Haveron: violin-director
Ben Jacks: horn
Classical to the core, with music by Schubert, Richard Strauss, a Mozart horn concerto and the spirited Linz symphony.
The SSOís Principal Horn, Ben Jacks, is the star in one of Mozartís exhilarating horn concertos. Composed for one of Mozartís good friends and a Ďrare virtuosoí of his day, this is music that shows off the horn as an instrument capable of great nobility as well as rousing brilliance.
The concerto is framed by a Mozart-inspired overture from Schubert and enchanting, atmospheric music from Richard Straussís last opera, Capriccio. And Mozartís Linz Symphony makes for a spirited finale. Mozart had arrived in Linz to be told that his host had organised a concert for him. A symphony was needed and, not having one in his luggage, Mozart had four days in which to write a new one! The result is a miracle of invention that gives absolutely no hint of the composerís rushed circumstances.
