Claire Chase, flute
Thomas Dausgaard, conductor
Johann Sebastian Bach – Brandenburg Concerto No. 4
Olga Neuwirth – Aello – ballet mécanomorphe (US Premiere)
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart – Symphony No. 41, “Jupiter”
Mozart’s grand “Jupiter” Symphony is carried by an almost explosive creativity, a melting pot of inspiration influenced by the great master Bach. Each of Bach’s concertos has a way of putting traditional orchestra hierarchy on its head and the Fourth Concerto is no exception. It’s matched with a work by Olga Neuwirth, Aello, a fascinating pairing originally performed at the BBC Proms with Thomas Dausgaard conducting the Swedish Chamber Orchestra.
