The overture to The Creation and different symphonic works by Franz Joseph Haydn all herald something that would become common throughout the 19th century: highly realistic descriptive musical portrayals of scenes and processes from nature. With this new turn, not only did classical music become the perfect vehicle for human expression but also for representing the sublime. This is one of the major achievements of the oratorio The Creation, an enlightened classical vision of the biblical Book of Genesis for solo singers, chorus and orchestra, the overture of which opens this concert.

PROGRAM

Program

The symphony “Jupiter" and the Concerto for Clarinet by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart are some of the last works he composed, and they demonstrate a strong desire to broaden his instrumental, expressive and formal resources. Composed close to the outbreak of the French Revolution, in them Mozart draws on the legacies of polyphonists to integrate counterpoint as a driving force. The fabulous Concerto for Clarinet, written for an instrument that constituted a whole new technical breakthrough at the time, is one of his most famous works.
