Mozart & Strauss

Jörg Widmann Director/Clarinet 


Mozart Adagio & Fugue C minor K 546

Mozart Serenade in C minor for Winds K. 388 Nachtmusik

Strauss Metamorphosen

The ICO emerge from darkness into light with Mozart’s Adagio & Fugue. The healing Adagio reminiscent of a French overture whilst the Fugue, rolls on relentlessly to its close.  Mozart’s powerful Wind Serenade oozes a new optimism, a celebration with music that brims with colour and sophistication.  Finally, Richard Strauss’s post-war masterpiece Metamorphosen mourns the death of German culture but its ravishing music evokes themes of rebirth, growth, and transformation. There are strong parallels as we emerge from the trauma of Covid with a huge sense of renewal and hope.
