Minkowski - Mozart, Symphonies 39 & 40
FESTIVAL MOZART MAXIMUM
Minkowski – Mozart, Symphonies 39 & 40
Marc Minkowski and the Musiciens du Louvre will bring down the curtain on the Insula orchestra season at La Seine Musicale with Mozart’s last two symphonies, both written in the summer of 1788. Tinted in places with melancholy, the expressiveness of the 39th Symphony paves the way for Romanticism, as does the 40th, the composer’s most intense, feverish and indeed tragic.
