Mozart’s Jupiter Symphony

Wagner is perhaps best-known for his grand operatic works, but his Siegfried Idyll, a symphonic poem for chamber orchestra, reflects a gentle, tender side of the composer. Mozart’s Jupiter Symphony, the final one he composed and his most famous, is known for its good humour, exuberant energy and unusually grand scale for a symphony of the time.

Schubert and the Swedish Mozart

Kraus has often been referred to as “the Swedish Mozart”, and while a talented composer in his own right, is overshadowed in popular memory by his famous contemporary. Schubert was infatuated with Mozart, but in contrast to Kraus’s symphony, his Symphony No. 5 is light and joyfully elegant.

The Master and the Prodigy

Haydn’s lighthearted Symphony No. 83, The Hen, is full of winsome, outdoorsy melodies – a true treat for the brain and the ears from a composer at the height of his powers. Written when he was just 15 years old, Mendelssohn’s Symphony No. 1 follows Haydn’s traditional symphonic sequence, and is filled with energy and drama.

Haydn’s buoyant Symphony No. 28 is full of interesting musical ideas, while a sense of life and affirmation is weaved into Schumann’s Symphony No. 2.  It’s full of the most positive elements of Romanticism, including a heroic opening movement and a triumphant finale.
