A programme in which we travel at full speed from the very beginning of the creation of the world (that dissonant and mysterious “representation of chaos” that opens Franz Joseph Haydn’s oratorio The Creation), followed – now in the sphere of everyday life – by the start of the day (with the Sixth Symphony, “Le Matin”, also by the “father” of Viennese Classicism), and finally dramatically lifting us in time and space (with Mozart’s last symphony, Symphony No. 41, the “Jupiter” Symphony).

Program

In between, the super-famous and no less sublime Clarinet Concerto by the Salzburg-born composer and the Third Symphony by Catalan composer Ferran Sor who, although often associated with the world of guitar, was a leading figure in Barcelona’s music world in the late 18th and early 19th centuries. Sor, who also wrote operas and ballets (some of them enjoying great success), had a life full of difficulties and unstable passions (something that is hardly surprising in a man with a temperament already influenced by the Romanticism that was gradually gaining ground in Europe).
