Jörg Widmann Director/Clarinet

Daniel Bates Oboe

Fiona Kelly Flute

Mozart Overture Cosi fan tutte K.588

Widmann Oboe concerto

Widmann Petite Suite for Flute

Mozart Symphony No. 36 in C major Linz, K. 425

Two stunning works by Mozart bookend another glittering ICO performance.  His music is infused with a sense of effortless perfection as seen in the Overture Così fan Tutte – which translates loosely as, “All women are like that.” The music sparkles from start to finish.  Mozart composed his Linz symphony in just four days – a masterwork of complexity and inventiveness in such speed was remarkable.  In between, Widmann’s Oboe Concerto, dedicated to Heinz Holliger, sees ICO Principal, Daniel Bates take centre-stage. His expressive Petite Suite for Flute, dedicated to the late Aurèle Nicolet, spans a vast range, from the dark, brooding opening low in the range to ecstatic heights. This colourful rendition puts the spotlight on ICO flautist Fiona Kelly.
