Brandenburg, Jupiter and More Points of Interest
Markus Huber, conductor
Bach: Brandenburg Concerto No. 3
Stravinsky: Concerto in Eflat (Dumbarton Oaks)
Ibert: Divertimento TSO Premiere
Mozart: Symphony No. 41, “Jupiter”
Bach’s Brandenburg Concertos are the epitome of complex, appealing Baroque works with the third presenting an integration of great beauty. The Brandenburgs inspired Stravinsky to craft an updated form in his concerto, Dumbarton Oaks, written during his “neo-classical” period.
Jacques Ibert’s Divertimento is characteristic of the good nature and brilliance of his works, brimming with wit and high spirits. Mozart’s last symphony, “Jupiter,” is regarded by many as his greatest work. A showcase for all of his considerable talents, it ranks as one of the world’s grandest symphonies.
