Mozarts Last Symphonies

Mozarts Last Symphonies
29 Sep - 12 Oct 2015

MOZART Symphony No.39
MOZART Symphony No.40
MOZART Symphony No.41 ‘Jupiter’

 

“One of the most characterful, incisive and impassioned violinists to be heard today.” The Daily Telegraph (UK) on Richard Tognetti

Join us for a celebration of the ACO's 40th anniversary and Richard Tognetti's 25th year leading the Orchestra. 

It was Tognetti’s first year as Artistic Director when he performed Mozart’s last three symphonies under the visionary baton of early music legend Frans Brüggen.

Now, as we celebrate his 25th year leading the Australian Chamber Orchestra, this landmark program is revisited, this time with Tognetti directing.

Mozart composed these three symphonies in a surge of inspiration between June and August 1788. He wasn’t to know they would be his last. But from the sunny lyricism of the 39th, to the tragic cast of the 40th, to the inspired invention of the 41st, they form a mighty epitaph to the work of a musical genius.
