Mozart - Symphony No.39 


Welcome to our first concert of the season. To enhance the enjoyment, our concert includes works by four composers of different European nationalities. One highlight will surely be the Saint-saens first cello concerto, a beautifully written work, to be played by our gifted cellist leader, Felicity Gibson. We have a chance to hear a short, fresh and beguiling symphony by the undeniably talented Spanish composer Arriaga, who sadly died very young while studying at the Paris Conservatoire. And then Mozart's symphony No39.  - the first of his final three symphonies, all written during the summer of 1788. It is quite likely that Mozart never heard these towering masterpieces, the culmination of his symphonic output - we are considerably more fortunate.
