I. STRAVINSKIJ, Apollon Musagete
W.A. MOZART, Sinfonia n. 41 in do magg. K 551 “Jupiter”
The 18th and 20th centuries are paired in the last concert of the 60th edition of the Stresa Festival. Mozart’s last symphony, K. 551, the Jupiter, marks a peak in the orchestral output of this great_Austrian composer.
The characteristics of the symphony merge in its dynamism and the constant flow between the sonata-form and counterpoint. The final result is overwhelming, and places Jupiter among the peaks of western classical music.
Stravinsky composed Apollon Musagete in 1928, in response to an American commission, to be “premièred” in Washington. Written for a classical ballet with a strings orchestra, it is divided as a suite for dance. Stravinsky himself said it was a pleasure to return to the pleasing mixture of the sound of strings and slot it into the smallest recesses of the polyphonic texture.
On stage this evening is the prestigious Roman Orchestra dell’Accademia di Santa Cecilia, performing at the Festival for the first time, under the baton of Daniele Gatti.
