the music

Mozart takes us from laughter to tears with this programme starting with the solemn C major of the overture to La clemenza di Tito, one of his rare works using the full classical orchestra. Without warning, tragedy arrives in the Piano Concerto No. 24 in C minor, already traversed by romantic storms. However, the 18-year-old rebellious musicians’ Symphony No. 25 in G minor, with its gripping syncopations and dissonances, shares a vision that cannot be dimmed! Prague, the only city where Mozart was truly happy, inspired him to write his luminous Symphony No. 38, still imbued with the Marriage of Figaro.

Increasingly swapping his bow for a baton, Leonidas Kavakos is one of the most interesting musicians of his generation, and is joined this evening by David Fray, one of today’s finest French soloists.

Discover an excerpt of the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande playing Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's Symphony No. 40 in G minor conducted by Heinz Holliger on May 6, 2011 at Victoria Hall and recorded by Espace 2.
