In this mid-winter Mostly Mozart, violinists Jakub Jakowicz and Sophie Rowell join musicians from the Australian National Academy of Music for a morning of 18th-century masterworks.

Journeying back to the heart of the Baroque era with J.S. Bach’s Concerto for Two Violins, the overlapping, intertwining dialogue between the two soloists and the ensemble showcases the glory of the era. With Polish-born Jakub Jakowicz’ career of chamber music artistry and one of Australia’s most-treasured musicians, Sophie Rowell, at the helm, Bach’s combination of rhythmic power and sustained songfulness leaps across centuries to bring delight to a troubled world.

Written in a blaze of inspiration in the summer of 1788, Mozart’s Symphony No.40 defies the descriptors of ‘powerful’ and ‘dramatic’. With the fiery urgency of the opening, the graceful serenity of the second movement, and finally, the spirited finale, Mozart’s emotional rollercoaster of melodies showcases the energetic power of the ANAM Orchestra.
