MOZART Symphony No. 41 ‘Jupiter’
Laura Samuel, the BBC SSO’s Leader, directs this programme with one of Mozart’s most familiar works, his last Serenade, the charming Eine kleine Nachtmusik.
Soprano Claire Booth then sings Les Illuminations, the song cycle which Benjamin Britten made in 1939 of some of Rimbaud’s sensuous and flamboyant poems.
The evening and the Series closes with Mozart’s enduringly popular ‘Jupiter’ Symphony, but before that an arrangement for string orchestra of Frank Bridge’s delightful Three Idylls, originally composed for string quartet in 1906.
