Mozart’s Horn Concerto No.3 & Linz Symphony

Mozart’s Horn Concerto No.3 & Linz Symphony

Classical to the core, with music by Schubert, a Mozart horn concerto and the spirited Linz symphony.

Our Principal Horn, Ben Jacks, is the star in one of Mozart’s exhilarating horn concertos. Composed for one of Mozart’s good friends and a ‘rare virtuoso’ of his day, this is music that shows off the horn as an instrument capable of great nobility as well as rousing brilliance. The concerto is framed by a Mozart-inspired overture from Schubert and Mozart’s high-spirited Symphony No.36. Mozart had arrived in Linz to be told that his host had organised a concert for him. A symphony was needed and, not having one in his luggage, Mozart had four days in which to write a new one! The result is a miracle of invention that gives absolutely no hint of the composer’s rushed circumstances.

This concert and the program was originally advertised with our Principal Flute Emma Sholl as soloist.

We are grateful to our Principal French Horn Ben Jacks for making himself available to replace Emma Sholl  for this special event.
