About this event

The ICO showcase two of Mozart’s great symphonies with Thomas Zehetmair, conductor at the NCH Dublin.

The city of Prague was the catalyst for Mozart’s bright and boisterous Symphony No. 38 a deeply expressive, boundary-pushing drama, brimming with energy. His emotive Symphony No. 40, adored by audiences, reflects Mozart’s personal struggles.

The gorgeous second movement, sees the strings woven closely together – as in the love duets of Italian operas of that time. In between Hartmann’s Concerto Funebre is a powerful and extraordinary work, which reacts to the tragic events of World War 2 and the occupation of Czechoslovakia.
