2014: Memory and Renewal
Centuries of music from the London Philharmonic Orchestra evoke changing times, in a concert broadcast online.
The eternal cycle: 1814 brought a fragile peace to Europe, and the teenage Schubert’s delightful Second Symphony seems to dance for joy.
A century later in 1914, Europe stood on the brink again, and the German composer Max Reger looked back, one last time, to Mozart: painting his musical tribute in all the colours of the Romantic orchestra.
It’s a sumptuous climax to a concert that begins amid the supercharged splendour of Baroque Venice.
We leap forward to 2014 – where a modern Austrian composer finds a myth of renewal snaking through the Alpine forests.
Cellist Kristina Blaumane joins conductor Thierry Fischer in Thomas Larcher’s extraordinary Ouroboros.
