A comment under a YouTube video can speak more directly than an elegantly written program note. About Bach’s B minor Mass, one user has written: “Probably the best piece of music EVER written, and I’m not even exaggerating, I’m being serious.” Completed the year before Bach’s death, the Mass is one of the most inspiring pieces of music ever composed. As musicologist Alberto Basso has put it: “The Mass in B minor is the consecration of a whole life.” The…

In the history of music there can be few examples of a composer ‘exceeding the brief’ with results as astounding as Schubert in his Octet. It was commissioned by one of the composer’s patrons, Count Ferdinand von Troyer, a talented amateur clarinettist who had played in the premiere of Beethoven’s celebrated Septet some 20 years earlier. He suggested Schubert compose a companion piece for Beethoven’s work, which he did faithfully – while also creating one of the richest works in…

Like many wealthy young Europeans of his day, Mendelssohn travelled widely and found musical inspiration on many of his journeys (think of that expressive musical picture, The Hebrides). One country brought him particular pleasure: “This is Italy! And now has begun what I have always thought... to be the supreme joy in life.” Inspired by his sojourn there, the Italian Symphony is sunshine and Chianti in music. Mendelssohn is one of the most frequently performed classical composers of them all, whereas Gideon…

Sergei Diaghilev’s Ballets Russes changed the history of ballet and the history of music too. Stravinsky composed all of his early landmark ballet scores for Diaghilev’s company, including Petrushka. It’s all energy, lyricism, playfulness and pathos, wrapped up in kaleidoscopic orchestral colours; it doesn’t take much imagination to see Petrushka and the Ballerina in their fairground tale of love and jealousy. Romantic pursuit lies at the heart of de Falla’s El sombrero de tres picos also: the miller’s attractive young wife is being…

Gábor Takács-Nagy is the complete musician; a founding member of the Takács Quartet, he has gone on to become an inspirational conductor and teacher of chamber music performance. In this sumptuous concert, he directs ANAM musicians in a banquet of music from one of the golden ages of music in Vienna. Mozart composed his miraculous Symphony no. 25 when he was just 17; Haydn’s jubilant Symphony no. 90 on the other hand, is a product of the composer’s rich maturity,…
