Mozart Jupiter Symphony

Masterworks Series >

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.

Schumann Piano Concerto

Masterworks Series >

Schumann's Piano Concerto owes a great debt to his wife, the composer and pianist Clara Schumann. From the yearning first movement to the joyful finale, her influence can be heard throughout as the piano and orchestra dance together in a tightly woven choreography. Composed as a tribute to her mother, Anna Clyne's Within Her Arms is a somber, deeply felt meditation on life and loss for string orchestra. Mendelssohn’s Third Symphony revisits the awe he felt as a young man in Edinburgh, beholding the ruined castle of Mary, Queen of Scots.

Rachmaninov Symphony No. 2

Masterworks Series >

Crippling self-doubt and scars from scathing reviews almost silenced Rachmaninov as a composer, but he fought his way back to create his rapturous Second Symphony, a work saturated with heart-wrenching beauty. In her new concerto, composer Angelique Poteat envisions a timely musical discourse in which the cello “strives to promote art, expression and free will in an orchestral swarm of oppression, close-mindedness and uncertainty.”
