Mozart Symphony No. 38 KV 504 Prague

Hartmann Violin Concerto, Op.19 (Funereal Concerto)

Mozart Symphony No. 40 in G minor, K.550

The ICO showcase two of Mozart’s great symphonies.  The city of Prague was the catalyst for Mozart’s bright and boisterous Symphony No. 38 a deeply expressive, boundary-pushing drama, brimming with energy.  His emotive Symphony No. 40, adored by audiences, reflects Mozart’s personal struggles.  The gorgeous second movement, sees the strings woven closely together – as in the love duets of Italian operas of that time.  In between Hartmann’s Concerto Funebre is a powerful and extraordinary work, which reacts to the tragic events of World War 2 and the occupation of Czechoslovakia.  It holds conflicting messages of hope, desperation, and fear for what lies ahead. Thomas Zehetmair ignites this thought-provoking work.
