Conductor Bruno Borralhinho returns to contact with the Portuguese Symphony Orchestra, after having performed – in chamber repertoire – in October 2018. This time they will perform the last three symphonies of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: no. 39, No. 40 (with its beginning that the whole planet can trace) and finally No. 41 (“Jupiter,” as it became known), whose final progress remains one of the greatest achievements in the history of music.
Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven are the three names of the so-called I Vienna School. With this classification Humanity just wanted to underline that they were the great composers of Classicism. The three left us an unavoidable set of symphonies: Beethoven’s were the most titanic; Haydn’s most humorous; Mozart’s remain the crystallization of the classic ideal of perfection and measure.
