Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart – Symphony No. 40 in G minor, K. 550
Behold a magical world of romance and heartbreak, inspired by ancient legends and love stories. Marc-André Dalbavie continues in that same French tradition of saturated colors tinged with historic resonance. There may not be a story attached to it, but Mozart’s Symphony No. 40 – an epic creation in the stormy key of G minor – is as dramatic as any tale ever told on a stage.
