ABOUT THIS CONCERT
For our first project with Daniele Gatti after completing the Schumann cycle, where we performed all Schumann symphonies, we create a programme that finds its inspiration in the intersection between classical and contemporary compositions.
The neoclassical style embraced by Prokofiev, Stravinsky, and other composers of the time, represents a deliberate shift towards a more balanced and restrained aesthetic. It sought to revive the elegance, clarity, and formal structure of the classical era, while incorporating contemporary musical techniques.
A representative from said classical era is Joseph Hadyn, his Sinfonia Concertante is a true gem of the classical repertoire. The soloists, featuring the oboe, bassoon, violin, and cello, shine alongside the orchestra, engaging in a delightful musical conversation. All soloists for this performance are chosen from within the MCO itself.
