Mozart Jupiter Symphony

Mozart’s grand “Jupiter” Symphony is carried by an almost explosive creativity, a melting pot of inspiration influenced by the great  master Bach. Each of Bach’s concertos has a way of putting traditional orchestra hierarchy on its head and the Fourth Concerto is no exception. It’s matched with a work by Olga Neuwirth, Aello, a fascinating pairing originally performed at the BBC Proms with Thomas Dausgaard conducting the Swedish Chamber Orchestra.
