CANCELLED due to coronavirus - Mozart with Ronald Brautigam


  • Dutilleux Métaboles
  • Mozart Piano Concerto KV 466
  • Mozart Overture in B-flat major 'Parisian'
  • Roussel Third symphony

You could say: add Dutilleux and Mozart together and you get Roussel. The explanation: Henri Dutilleux chose for (French) free sound experiments and let the orchestra make its own choices, as it were. Métaboles is a true 'Concert for Orchestra'. Mozart was a lover of fixed forms (rondo) and free interpretation (the Romanze, the second movement of his Piano Concerto 466 is one of the most beautiful middle movements Mozart ever wrote). Albert Roussel was imbued with rules, forms and traditions, but he completely moulded them to his own will, with his Third Symphony as the climax . If you like drive, sharp contours, daring dissonances à la 1930, and even a hint of impressionism here and there, then Roussel's Third Symphony is highly recommended. A big plus: the capricious mood swings do not impose any concrete images on you: no nature scenes or cathedrals of sound à la Bruckner, no autobiographical musings and no pathetic images à la Wagner. Simply blissful orchestral music that does not revolve around anything.
