Proportion, balance, elegance—our 2016 season opens with four iconic works, offering four very different visions of Classical beauty.
Two of the most enduring works from Mozart’s artistic zenith showcase his extraordinary emotional range as a mature composer. Audience favourite David Griffiths performs the solo in the serene Clarinet Concerto, Mozart’s final concerto work, which is contrasted with one of his most tempestuous visions, the Symphony No. 40 in G minor.
Ravishingly beautiful French vignettes for harp and strings epitomise the clarity of spirit of turn-of-the century French music. Brilliant young harpist Melina van Leeuwen joins MCO to perform in Ravel’s sparkling Introduction & Allegro and Debussy’s Danses sacrée et profane.
