It’s difficult to imagine how Mozart could have followed his final symphony, the ‘Jupiter’ – a work of such scale, majesty and intensity. Tom Service and Nicholas Collon unpick Mozart’s continuous stream of joy and invention, allowing us to get under the skin of this great work, which the Aurora Orchestra plays from memory. Before it, one of the world’s leading oboists, François Leleux, plays Strauss’s twisting, singing Oboe Concerto – itself preceded by Wolfgang Rihm’s Hunted Form, whose animal energy suggests a pursuit more physical than a search merely for musical structure.
