The Joy of Mozart

Emma McGrath, TSO Concertmaster, shines as soloist in Mozart’s joyous Violin Concerto No 3, one of the loveliest creations of a composer whose music never fails to touch the soul. Despite the nickname, Haydn’s Mourning Symphony is not in the least bit melancholy. One of the composer’s “Storm and Stress” symphonies, it revels in minor keys and agitated rhythms. Likewise dramatic is Brahms’s Tragic Overture, a robust statement by one of music’s master symphonists. Erich Wolfgang Korngold had a special talent for writing theatrical music and would go on to have an illustrious career as a Hollywood film composer. Much Ado about Nothing springs to life in his imaginative orchestral suite.
