Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra - Mozart’s Vienna
When Mozart’s father, Leopold, met Joseph Haydn in Vienna in 1785, Haydn remarked, ‘Before God and as an honest man, your son is the greatest composer I know, either personally or by name.’ Haydn was no slouch himself and in this concert the two great Viennese contemporaries stand shoulder to shoulder. Mozart’s Concerto for Flute and Harp is one of the most sparkling works that ever flowed from his hand, and Haydn’s Miracle Symphony is, well, miraculous. Music by Suppé and Johann Strauss II open a window onto a different Vienna altogether. The overture to Poet and Peasant is a rollicking operetta curtain-raiser and the Kaiser Waltz – or, in English, Emperor Waltz – is among the finest of the many hundreds of waltzes by Vienna’s undisputed ‘Waltz King’.
