Mozart composed a double concerto for flute and harp for the Comte de Guines – a favourite of Marie Antoinette and a fine flautist. With its poetic, serene second movement and glorious shades of colour from the rarely heard period harp, this rarely performed piece has become a truly beloved Mozart work. Then get ready for Mozart’s last symphony. The mythological name Jupiter symbolises the classical deity and virtues of strength and wisdom. It is a triumphant and exciting masterpiece, and the final coda of the Jupiter Symphony is a miracle! Something very special indeed to celebrate the 25th year of the Brandenburg.
Australia’s ARIA Award-winning a cappella quartet, The Idea of North, joins forces with Sydney Chamber Choir to explore the music of Icelandic pop princess, Bjørk. Drawing upon the rich vein of folk and a cappella singing, they perform a series of specially commissioned arrangements of the music of Bjørk as well as music from other Icelandic artists.
