Mozart’s career as a symphonist simultaneously came to an end and reached its summit with the Jupiter Symphony. A towering work even by Mozart’s remarkable standards, it is stirring, touching and life affirming. Less imposing is the Serenata notturna, a delightful piece of ephemera that was probably written for the Salzburg Carnival of 1776.
Younger brother of Joseph Haydn and a colleague of the Mozarts in Salzburg, Michael Haydn was a prolific composer whose music deserves to be better known. His Concerto for Alto Trombone is a dazzling showpiece for a versatile but little heard instrument. Australian composer Julian Yu brings his meticulous working method to Sinfonia passacaglissima, a brilliant orchestral showpiece.
