Gábor Takács-Nagy is the complete musician; a founding member of the Takács Quartet, he has gone on to become an inspirational conductor and teacher of chamber music performance. In this sumptuous concert, he directs ANAM musicians in a banquet of music from one of the golden ages of music in Vienna. Mozart composed his miraculous Symphony no. 25 when he was just 17; Haydn’s jubilant Symphony no. 90 on the other hand, is a product of the composer’s rich maturity, by which time his fame had spread through Europe. Beethoven’s rarely-heard Overture honours Hungary’s first king, while Schubert’s delicious Overture is better known as the one to the play Rosamunde; a publisher appropriated it for that purpose decades after Schubert’s death.
