Product Notes

For today's musicologists, performers and concert-going audiences, Mozart's final symphonies are still a veritable miracle. Why they were written remains a mystery, and no one knows whether Mozart ever heard them performed during his lifetime. The symphonies in G minor, K. 550 (no. 40), and C Major, K. 551 (no. 41, also known as "The Jupiter") are the ones that most represent Mozart's symphonic legacy to later generations of musicians. As early as 1800, the popular "Great" G minor Symphony was praised as the "painting of a passion-stricken soul". Like it's big sister, the "Jupiter" Symphony in C Major, it numbers among the most-played works in classical music and has been immortalized in countless recordings. Nevertheless, these symphonies - probably the most profound ones before Beethoven - reveal themselves as something quite new in every interpretation. "Mozart placed all the dark sides of human existence into his G minor Symphony", says Herbert Blomstedt, adding that it's "passion" continues to fascinate him. The eminent Swedish conductor Herbert Blomstedt, a close associate and regular guest conductor of the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks, conducted the G minor Symphony in concerts on January 31 and February 1, 2013 and the "Jupiter" Symphony on December 21 and 22, 2017 in the Herkulessaal of Munich's Residenz. The new release from BR-KLASSIK now presents these two great cornerstones of Mozart's symphonic oeuvre -in the very best sound quality.
