“With Mozart's Symphony No.39, we are starting a mini-cycle of the last three Mozart Symphonies which we will perform 2023 to 2025. All the music in this concert gravitates around our theme for 2023: the Classical era. And with this concert, we farewell it. Every piece is an homage to Mozart’s art: Prokofiev with his classical symphony and Schubert with his Fifth, clearly inspired by Mozart who he admired deeply. ‘O Mozart, immortal Mozart, how many, oh how endlessly many such comforting perceptions of a brighter and better life hast thou brought to our souls!’ (F. Schubert). Finally, Rossini is considered by many to be the ‘Italian Mozart’ and he refused to adapt to Romanticism.” Chief Conductor Umberto Clerici
