Never miss another 'BBC Philharmonic Orchestra' show
BBC Philharmonic Orchestra
Beethoven - Musik zu einem Ritterballett
Mozart - Clarinet Concerto
Schubert - Symphony No. 9
Did you know that Beethoven’s first music for orchestra was written for a ballet featuring knights on horseback? He was just twenty, and his score features cameos depicting love, hunting and drinking. At exactly the same time, Mozart was composing one of his last masterpieces, the haunting Clarinet Concerto. Schubert’s last completed symphony - the Great C major - pushes out the boundaries of music. It is a work full of magical moments, conjuring up along its way contrasts of otherworldliness with rustic dancing. And the Finale is a pure hymn to joy.
