National Philharmonic: Jupiter Symphony
Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 20, one of Beethoven’s favorites, has a verve and intensity that one seldom associates with the musical genius. It is no wonder that Beethoven not only favored this concerto, but also wrote a cadenza that evokes, in a Beethovenian way, the energy and intensity of the work. The Symphony No. 41, appropriately nicknamed “Jupiter,” is a towering and majestic work. The charming Overture to Il re Pastore (1775), written when he was only 19, is quintessential Mozart–a microcosm of drama, elegance and ease.
