Information about the programme

Following his successful début with the BRSO last year, François-Xavier Roth has again been invited to Munich to conduct two concerts outside the regular season. The concerts will begin and end with towering masterpieces from Mozart’s symphonic output: the majestic Symphony in E flat major (K 543) and his final contribution to the genre, the radiant “Jupiter” Symphony (K 551). As a counterpoint to Mozart’s classical ideal, they will frame a mesmerizing gossamer creation by Anton Webern: his terse Concerto for Nine Instruments op. 24 (1934), a work lasting no more than a few minutes. Composed strictly according to the 12-tone method, its three movements project quite different moods, from flickering whimsy to wan pallor to a jaunty march.
