Sheldonian Theatre, Oxford

About the event

MOZART Der Schauspieldirektor Overture, K. 486
MOZART Violin Concerto No. 5 in A major, K. 219
SCHUMANN Symphony No. 1 in B flat major, Op. 38

Tamás András violin
Jose Luis Gomez conductor

Following Mozart’s comic overture, his great last Violin Concerto - composed during a flurry of violin-focussed creativity - brims over with imaginative possibility. Rich melodies and beautiful sonorities are combined with daring inner complexities, no better illustrated than by his exploration of exotic Turkish themes during the work’s finale – one of the most remarkable of the 18th century. Schumann’s ‘Spring’ Symphony, joyfully exhilarating from the off, is perfectly matched by conductor Jose Luis Gomez’s dynamic vitality: a sure bet for a fantastic finish!
