BBC Philharmonic

Beethoven  Musik zu einem Ritterballett
Mozart  Clarinet Concerto
Schubert  Symphony No. 9

Juanjo Mena  Conductor
Julian Bliss  Clarinet

Did you know that Beethoven’s first music for orchestra was written for a ballet featuring knights on horseback?   He was just twenty, and his score features cameos depicting love, hunting and drinking.   At exactly the same time, Mozart was composing one of his last masterpieces, the haunting Clarinet Concerto. Schubert’s last completed symphony - the Great C major - pushes out the boundaries of music.   It is a work full of magical moments, conjuring up along its way contrasts of otherworldliness with rustic dancing.   And the Finale is a pure hymn to joy.
