Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra presents

Mozart by Goebel



Reinhard Goebel, conductor
Mirijam Contzen, violin

The BSO is delighted to welcome master of historical performance, Reinhard Goebel for a concert dedicated to the genius that is Mozart. Arriving in Paris in 1778, Mozart soon started writing for the Parisian taste for colour and excitement, and Symphony No.31 grabs the listener’s attention instantly and continues with athletic energy and brilliant vitality. Mozart’s compositional development is also apparent in the controversial Violin Concerto K271a – but is it Mozart or not? Either way it is worthy of performance with its richness of orchestral writing and dashing solo flourishes.

The concert also features Mozart’s richly scored, dignified and noble orchestral interlude from Idomeneo, reflecting the opera’s central theme of averted disaster and final harmonious conclusion. Also written for a Paris premiere in 1779, Johann Christian Bach’s opera did not receive public success, a pity as the music is dynamic and accomplished.
