Our Principal artist Sir Simon Rattle joins us for the final concert of a major European tour to conduct Mozart’s last three symphonies. Although written in relatively quick succession, these three works offer great contrasts. Symphony No.39 is full of wide, flowing melodies, whilst Symphony No.40 plumbs deep emotional depths and is perhaps one of the most tragic pieces that Mozart penned. Conversely, his last Symphony, No.41 ‘Jupiter’, rounds the evening off in an explosion of sheer joy, energy and exuberance.
