Three peerless melodists make up this enticing programme from the Royal Northern Sinfonia, under their new Principal Conductor, Dinis Sousa. Schubert’s abandoned work, the haunting 8th Symphony ia a compelling, dark drama, with poignant, singing lines set against threatening storm clouds. Saint-Saëns’ popular concerto, with nods to the composer’s idol, Bach, switches from a lyrical opening to champagne-popping celebration and a dizzying final movement. Swiss virtuoso, Louis Schwizgebel, is the perfect soloist to negotiate its deft twists and turns. Mozart’s 40th Symphony remains one of his greatest achievements, an urgent, questing journey, played out in the composer’s most transparent and persuasive writing.
