Why See New York Philharmonic - Mozart's Jupiter Symphony and Ax?
I am one of those who will go on doing till all doings are at an end.
- Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Accomplishing in one short lifetime what many couldn't seek to imitate in three or four, Mozart's endures not just because of his myriad output but the quality in which each work is imbued. Here, the Philharmonic picks out his first and last Symphonies, composed at age 8 and 32 respectively to illustrate the otherworldly talent of the maestro.
At just 8 years old, Mozart wrote his first Symphony on a trip to London, beautiful and simple, it notably uses the same French Horn signature as echoed in his divine 41st (Jupiter) as if to compound his own growth. Enjoy these two pieces that bookend the concert and marvel the level of majesty contained in both.
In the centre, Emmanuel Ax takes to the piano for Haydn's lively Piano Concerto No.11 and Stravinsky's 'breadwinning' Capriccio.
