BBC Proms at Sage Gateshead: Mazzoli, Mozart & Brahms


Missy Mazzoli Sinfonia (for Orbiting Spheres)
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart Piano Concerto No. 20
Johannes Brahms Symphony No. 2

Dinis Sousa conductor
Kristian Bezuidenhout
Royal Northern Sinfonia

Light and darkness battle it out in this tempestuous programme from Royal Northern Sinfonia and Principal Conductor Dinis Sousa. ‘Black wings are constantly beating above us,’ Brahms wrote, encouraging the listener to hear the shadow that melancholy casts over his apparently serene Symphony No. 2. The same uneasy spirit runs through Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 20 in D minor, which shares its stormy key with his opera Don Giovanni and his Requiem. Cosmic order is established in the circling musical orbits and interesting paths of Missy Mazzoli’s hypnotic Sinfonia, written ‘in the shape of a solar system’.
