Mozart Horn Concerto No. 3 in E flat major, K. 447
Wagner Siegfried Idyll, WWV 103
Schubert Symphony No. 5 in B flat major, D. 485
Radek Baborák horn/conductor
In 1816, a teenage Franz Schubert briefly rebelled against the emotional overabundance of prevailing musical trends as established by Beethoven. Schubert’s musical reaction was his Symphony No. 5 – a piece in which we hear exemplified the principle of ‘dissolving in love’ which Schubert held so dear, and which seems to look backwards to the limpid, graceful and elegantly-proportioned music of Mozart. The most perfectly formed work Schubert had created to date is heard here alongside that of his forbear and an exquisite miniature from the master of majesty, Richard Wagner, as we welcome the Orchestra’s Solo Horn Radek Baborák as both soloist and conductor.
