Mozart 39, 40 & 41

ANAM at Melbourne Recital Centre.

On three days in the 1788 European summer, three musical wonders came into being. These perfectly proportioned symphonies serve up a tumult of wonderful melodies, colours and imagination, and, in the final moments of the final movement of the final symphony, tumble us into a cavalcade of the most miraculous invention, worthy of JS Bach. Following his sold out Beethoven cycle with the MSO in 2016, Douglas Boyd returns to Melbourne and to three works closest to his heart.

MOZART Symphony no. 39 in E-flat major K543
MOZART Symphony no. 40 in G minor K550
MOZART Symphony no. 41 in C major K551 Jupiter

“In days gone by this classical era Mozart Haydn Beethoven was often produced as a museum piece. And the challenge for us is to express to the public in concert, that this music, it’s not ‘classical’ music it’s miraculous music it’s the greatest possible music. Why? Because it has the ability to express every emotion we can experience as human beings. Not just relaxing or lovely or nice but as well as joy and beauty and love, it can also express despair and terror” – Douglas Boyd
