Ones to Watch Series: Aurora Orches...
PEKKA KUUSISTO, violinNICHOLAS COLLON, conductorPROGRAMMEBEETHOVENString Quartet No.8, Op. 59II. Molto adagio (Si tratta questo pezzo con molto di sentimento)MAX RICHTERNew Work (World Premiere)ADÈSViolin Concerto, ‘Concentric Paths’MOZARTSymphony No. 41 in C major, K551 (From Memory)ABOUT THE EVENTIn this concert, the Aurora Orchestra explores celestial sounds and the cosmic order in an eclectic programme enriched by choreography and illustration.For the Greek philosophers and their later admirers in the Renaissance, music was of profound importance, woven into the fabric of the cosmos as elemental sounds produced by the stars and planets themselves. This enduring concept of the ‘music of the spheres’ provides the starting point for what promises to be one of Aurora's most visually spectacular Orchestral Theatre adventures, with elements of design, lighting, projection and illustration placing the orchestra inside these ancient visions of our solar system.At the heart of the concert is a memorised performance of Mozart’s ‘Jupiter’ Symphony, the composer’s final and arguably greatest single musical achievement. This most perfectly-crafted expression of symphonic form is presented here entirely from memory: a thrillingly direct and communicative performance style pioneered by the Aurora Orchestra in recent seasons as the first orchestra in history to play whole symphonies without the aid of sheet music.The programme also includes the world premiere of a new work by Max Richter created especially for this project, and Thomas Adès’ Violin Concerto ‘Concentric Paths’, a soaring modern masterpiece performed by Pekka Kuusisto – one of the brightest stars in today’s musical firmament.Photo credit: Nick Rutter
