PROGRAM NOTES by Gavin Borchert Giuseppe Torelli 1658 1709 Artwork The Adoration of the Magi Concerto Grosso No 6 in G Minor Op 8 Christmas Concerto 1701 09 Torelli spent most of his career as a violinist and violist in the orchestra of the Basilica of San Petronio in Bologna his birthplace His rst stint there was from 1686 to 1696 and it was then that he wrote most of his orchestral music works for strings often with one or more trumpets added to lend a stirring triumphant tone deemed appropriate to precede Mass services These are among the earliest orchestral works in the repertory the only contemporaneous works likely to pop up on concert programs are Arcangelo Corelli s concerti grossi possibly dating from the 1680s or suites drawn from Henry Purcell s theater music from the 1680s and 90s Torelli then spent a few years as an itinerant musician serving a year or two in the orchestra of the Margrave of Brandenburg the same nobleman to whom Bach later o ered his Brandenburg Concertos as a sort of job application By 1701 he was back with San Petronio he published the 12 concertos of Op 8 subtitled Concerti grossi con una pastorale per il Santissimo Natale in the year of his death In composing orchestral music for Christmas services Italian baroque composers imitated the bagpipes played by shepherds at the Nativity through the use of drone basses and gentle tempos Corelli Vivaldi and Torelli s student Manfredini all left examples and of course Handel drew on this custom for the Pastoral Symphony in his Messiah Michael Nyman b 1944 Artwork Study in Perpetual Motion Concert Suite FROM Prospero s Books 1991 94 Propulsive rhythms and often but not always a harmonic avor of 18th and 19th century music are the hallmarks of this British composer s style Nyman has said that Mozart s aria Madamina il catalogo e questo from Don Giovanni with its cheeky chugging accompaniment was its foundation stone His score for this lm a free and fanciful adaptation of Shakespeare s The Tempest was the last of his collaborations with director Peter Greenaway he made his mark with his music for Greenaway s The Draughtsman s Contract and The Cook the Thief His Wife and Her Lover but he is possibly best remembered for his huge selling 1993 score for Jane Campion s triple Oscar winner The Piano Nyman has said of his music for Prospero s Books As is appropriate for a cinematic reconceptualisation of a play set on an isle full of noises Prospero s Books is full of music However having studied The Tempest for A level many years ago my memory played me false I had remembered Caliban s line as referring to an island full of voices By the time I had discovered this error which had me initially down the path of creating the soundtrack entirely from sampled voices taken from a multitude of sources the overall conception of the score had become essentially vocal For the score as a whole stylistically the initial decision not to do a Draughtsman was easy to adhere to No music would be written or re written which was remotely contemporary with Shakespeare s play apart from one single decorous whi of a Dowland song i e English Renaissance composer John Dowland 1563 1626 Of the soundtrack s 14 numbers Nyman chose ve to construct a suite for for chamber orchestra in 1994 The rst performance was given by the Scottish Chamber Orchestra conducted by Ivor Bolton in January 1995 Like what you heard today Find us on Spotify at Cincinnati Chamber Orchestra for playlists curated for each Mainstage concert 2 6 S U M M E R M U S I K F E S T I VA L 2 0 1 9

PROGRAM NOTES by Gavin Borchert Fanny Hensel 1805 47 Overture in C Major 1834 Growing up in a prosperous household that could a ord not only top ight musical training but performance opportunities before an appreciative circle of friends Fanny Mendelssohn and her brother Felix younger by just over three years both prodigies started out with equal advantages until it became clear that only one sibling would be encouraged to make a career out of music Her father liberal as regards women s education but as conservative as could be in every other question of gender roles stated this brutally in a letter of 1820 Music will perhaps become Felix s profession while for you it can and must be only an ornament Though Fanny composed o and on her whole life hundreds of songs and piano pieces and some chamber music Felix too discouraged her merely throwing her a bone by publishing a few of her many songs under his name Felix got his comeuppance years later when his fan and patron Queen Victoria an amateur singer herself selected one of his songs to perform and he was forced to confess to Her Majesty it was actually his sister s Her husband the painter Wilhelm Hensel was much more supportive but even his encouragement had its paternalistic side it s said he refused to marry her unless she promised to continue composing and each morning he laid a blank sheet of music paper on her pillow exhorting her to ll it by day s end But he must have felt such bossiness necessary to overcome Fanny s self e acement Before their marriage in October 1829 Fanny had written him Art is not for women only for girls on the threshold of my new life I take leave of this plaything Not until 1846 did she allow any work to appear under her own name nally relenting to the fervent advocacy of her husband her mother and even French composer Charles Gounod whom she met and struck up a friendship with during a trip to Italy In a letter to Felix announcing her decision she was distressingly apologetic I m beginning to publish I ve done it of my own free will and cannot blame anyone in my family if aggravation results from it I hope I shall not disgrace you all She published 4 4 S U M M E R M U S I K F E S T I VA L 2 0 1 9

six collections of solo and choral songs and pieces for piano The response was gratifying inspiring her to write a large scale piano trio in April 1847 She died a month later of a stroke while conducting a rehearsal of a choral work of Felix s This overture seems to be Fanny s only work for orchestra alone though she did write some larger works for chorus and orchestra It s not known exactly when she wrote it but she did get to hear it in 1834 at one of the Sunday musicales she had started up again in imitation of the musical salons of her youth Taking the bull by the horns she hired an orchestra On the Sunday following I had a full orchestra from the K nigstadt theatre and had my overture performed which sounded very well Though these musicales grew into a full edged public concert series she is sadly not known to have written any more orchestral works The overture s most brilliant attention getting idea is the mid phrase surprise shift from slow to fast tempo its quicksilver el n charm is its most Felix like trait and its subtly evocative shifts between major and minor and its rousing theatricality suggest that she might have been expert at the character and mood painting of Romantic opera Johann Sebastian Bach 1685 1750 Concerto No 2 for two pianos in C Major BWV 1061 Bach left us 13 concertos for keyboard instruments seven for one keyboard three for two two for three and one for four Most of these seem to have been arrangements of other works and probably date from his years in Leipzig when he was in charge of an ensemble called the Collegium Musicum and needed a steady supply of music for its informal concerts We know the sources of ve of these Bach s two violin concertos the concerto for two violins his Brandenburg Concerto no 4 and a Vivaldi concerto for four violins all were transformed into harpsichord concertos It wouldn t have taken much e ort Essentially just give the solo violin line to the harpsichordist s right hand and contrive a discreet left hand part possibly just doubling the orchestra s cellos and basses and there you are It s possible though that this C Major concerto was an original work rather than an arrangement However Bach may have written it for two harpsichords alone and added the string parts later or another possibility the string parts may be the work of another composer entirely Perhaps one of his sons The strings contribute independent lines in the rst movement but sit out the lovely second movement and in the third almost always just duplicate what the pianos are doing Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart 1756 1791 Concerto No 10 in E flat Major for two pianos K 365 316a 1775 77 Most sources state this work was written in 1779 but judging from the type of music paper Mozart used it seems to date from a few years earlier No one disputes though that it was written for himself and his sister Maria Anna to play Though by this time they were no longer touring Europe as prodigies to be shown o they still gave concerts together Biographer Hermann Abert suggests that Mozart composed the siblings close warm jocular relationship into the music The two soloists go their own way harmoniously and contentedly as did Mozart and his sister They engage in lively debate on the subject of the same themes repeating each others ideas varying them interrupting each other and occasionally indulging in a certain disputatious teasing but without their basic amity being disturbed by any serious di erences of opinion After Mozart moved to Vienna in 1781 he appears to have played the concerto publicly at least three times with Josepha von Auernhammer a piano student of his who apparently wanted to be more than a student and was unsubtle about her interest Mozart did not requite it though he praised her piano playing his descriptions of her physical appearance and her romantic tactics are too brutal to be quoted It does not exonerate him that she or so Mozart tells us agreed Assuming a marriage proposal would be unlikely she planned to polish her piano skills move to Paris and make a career as a pianist In the end Auernhammer did marry and didn t become a professional pianist though she did turn to composition with 63 published works to her credit After hearing this concerto s richly romantic second movement you might decide it was unwise for Mozart to have played it with her if he didn t want to lead her on it ends with a burst of sonorous almost Rachmaninovian passion for the two pianos and an emotion laden farewell gesture from the orchestra S U M M E R M U S I K F E S T I VA L 2 0 1 9 4 5

FELIX MENDELSSOHN 1809 1847 Symphony No 4 in A Major Op 90 Italian 1832 I have entered Italy at last Mendelssohn wrote to his mentor Carl Friedrich Zelter in October 1830 from Venice the rst stop on the ten month tour that the 21 year old composer had turned down a post at the Berlin Conservatory to undertake Rome was his next major stop after the new year he continued to Naples Capri Pompeii Genoa and Milan all the while sending home letters lled with vivid descriptions of all he saw and experienced His lodgings in the Piazza di Spagna in Rome were light and pleasant and immensely congenial to composition It was here that Mendelssohn completed the Hebrides Overture wrote the whole of the cantata The First Walpurgis Night and began the Italian and Scottish symphonies I never remember having worked with so much zeal he wrote in December But the northern symphony was soon laid aside and in fact not picked up again until 1842 in favor of the southern Who can wonder that I nd it impossible to return to my Scottish misty mood The Italian symphony makes rapid progress it will be the most amusing piece I have composed especially the last movement I have not yet decided on the Adagio and think I shall reserve it for Naples Pages and pages of his letters are devoted to minute details of Roman liturgical music and ceremonies so it s not surprising that the slow movement took on a avor that calls to mind a Holy Week processional The third movement was possibly based on a poem of Goethe whose own famous pilgrimage to Italy served as inspiration and model for Mendelssohn s The fourth a tarantella returns to the unclouded mood of the rst Allegro vivace The Italian symphony was rst performed on March 13 1833 not long after its completion So why is it given the number 4 while the Scottish symphony of nine years later is called the Third Mendelssohn s ve symphonies were numbered in order of their publication 1 2 3 4 5 but were actually completed in the order 1 5 4 2 3 he had always held the Italian back intending to revise it and thus it was never available for publication until 1851 after his death 4 6 S U M M E R M U S I K F E S T I VA L 2 0 1 9

PROGRAM NOTES by Gavin Borchert Carlos Surinach 1915 97 Ritmo Jondo Flamenco for Orchestra 1952 3 Born and schooled in Barcelona Surinach also studied brie y with Richard Strauss just before the latter s death He moved to the U S in 1951 where he was also active as a conductor He is most celebrated as a ballet composer writing music for Martha Graham and the Jo rey Ballet The original version of Ritmo jondo was scored for clarinet trumpet and percussion consisting of just three movements For the 1952 premiere at the Museum of Modern Art he provided these notes Bulerias A gay fast Flamenco dance improvisatory in character with shifting rhythms The dancer punctuates the guitar and vocal accompaniment with heel stamping and nger snapping while the onlookers interject rhythmic hand clapping and shouts to spur the dancer on Seata A slow ritual song of Seville sung in the streets during the Good Friday procession Instruments are prohibited during this season however mu ed drums are often employed adding to the mournful mood of lamentation Garrotin A violent temperamental dance of Flamenco origin accompanied only by snatches of melody sung by the dancer and the staccato clapping rhythms of the surrounding observers Their loud cries of Ole incite the dancer to ever wilder displays of passion The following year Surinach expanded the piece for small orchestra and added four movements to accompany a ballet titled Deep Rhythm by Doris Humphrey rst performed by Jose Limon and his company Luigi Boccherini 1743 1805 La Musica Notturna delle Strade di Madrid Op 30 No 6 G 324 1780 In his early years after he left his native Lucca Italy at age 13 Boccherini was a widely traveled composer and virtuoso cellist with sojourns in Rome Vienna Lombardy and Paris before settling in Spain circa 1761 to take a plum job as musician at the court of Charles III under the particular patronage of the king s brother the Infante Don Luis From this peak of success Boccherini sadly sank as steadily as he had risen The Infante died in 1785 and later support from Friedrich Wilhelm II of Prussia ended when Friedrich did in 1797 Boccherini also outlived two wives and four daughters before succumbing himself in 1805 Unusually for his time especially for an Italian composer he wrote practically nothing for the stage he instead concentrated on chamber music hundreds upon hundreds of pieces many spotlighting his own instrument the cello His preference for the scoring of a string quintet was two violins one viola and two cellos as Schubert later chose for his quintet of 1828 Most other quintets Mozart s Brahms Dvorak s used two violas and one cello to provide harmonic richness in the middle of the texture Boccherini s strategy was to give one cello a virtuoso showo part and use the other as a simple bass line Schubert on the other hand liked to exploit the wide contrast in color between the cello s plangent upper register and dark ominous lower register His best known piece is the Minuet from one of these quintets in E Major a familiar strain in pop culture on TV commercials and the like when an 18th century mood needs to be established Boccherini occasionally drew on the amboyance of the folk music of his adopted homeland One work he wrote for guitar and string quartet asks the cello to double on castanets His most outre exploration of local color and one of the most adorably weird pieces of the 18th century is this string quintet evoking both the religious and military presence in Spanish society Its seven sections calling them movements would be a stretch begin with sonorous pizzicatos on open strings in imitation of church bells followed by a scrubbing passage for violins representing snare drum rolls A minuet danced by blind beggars is accompanied by guitar like strums on the cellos A duet for cello and violin the cello on top titled The Rosary is a heartfelt prayer in the form of an aria with more pizzicato bells It s interrupted twice by an even more vigorous minuet Your guess is as good as mine what these interruptions represent the beggars importuning even more insistently assuming that people praying might be more likely to contribute Another dance marked Passa calle is the most guitar y the most overtly Spanish section evoking street serenaders singing as they stroll down the calle This custom by the way eventually morphed into the form of the passacaglia a term used by Bach and others to denote a piece built over a repeating bass line or harmonic progression It too is twice interrupted by a ashy violin solo The snare drum returns brie y and continues underneath a jolly march of retreat ending quietly as the regiment passes into the night S U M M E R M U S I K F E S T I VA L 2 0 1 9 5 9

PROGRAM NOTES by Gavin Borchert Joseph Bologne Chevalier de Saint Georges 1745 99 Overture to L amant anonyme 1780 The 18th century s most renowned composer of African descent Joseph Bologne was the son of a Guadeloupe plantation owner and an African slave Taken to Paris for his education he became equally expert as a violinist and as a swordsman attaining the rank of Chevalier at age 19 and his career was split between music and the military In addition as one writer put it all contemporary accounts speak of his romantic conquests He played in and eventually led two of Paris s most important orchestras the Concerts des Amateurs and the Concert de la Loge Olympique for which Haydn s Paris symphonies Nos 82 86 were commissioned He was also invited to run the Paris Opera but three of the company s female singers objected on racial grounds and petitioned Marie Antoinette in complaint Bologne withdrew his name from consideration but was later invited by the Queen herself to perform in her chamber music evenings at Versailles it is said she even accompanied him on the piano Nearly all his extant instrumental music incorporates his instrument violin concertos violin sonatas string quartets and a form particularly popular in Paris the symphonie concertante which combined the orchestral breadth of a symphony with the virtuoso ash of a concerto In addition Bologne wrote six operas of which the music to L amant anonyme alone survives complete Opera overtures of the period were often cast in three brief movements fast slow fast and thus were essentially short symphonies several Mozart works for example were used interchangeably as overtures in the theater and symphonies in the concert hall Bologne published two symphonies the second of which is this overture Domenico Cimarosa 1749 1801 Overture to Il matrimonio segreto 1792 Europe s most popular opera composer between the death of Mozart and the ascent of Rossini 1810 or so Domenico Cimarosa wrote more than 80 operas about three quarters of them comic Stendhal and Goethe lavished praise on him and he spent 1787 91 at the court of Catherine the Great in St Petersburg leaving it is said because of the still greater popularity there of the operas of Martin y Soler and because of the harsh winters Soler 1754 1806 is remembered today mainly because Mozart quoted a catchy tune from his opera Una cosa rara as dinner music in the banquet scene in Don Giovanni Cimarosa was granted a unique honor after the February 7 1792 premiere of his opera Il matrimonio segreto The Viennese Emperor Leopold II who was present asked for the entire opera to be repeated later that same evening in his private quarters It remained his most popular work and is today practically the only opera from the period aside from Mozart s performed with any frequency The bustling overture may bring to mind that of The Marriage of Figaro with maybe a dash of Rossini Josef Myslive ek 1737 81 Overture No 2 in A Major F 27 publ 1772 Born and educated in Prague Myslive ek moved to Venice in 1763 began composing operas in 1766 and found success In the 15 years he had left he wrote 26 operas in addition to oratorios symphonies chamber music and violin concertos This particular overture in three brief movements fast slowfast comes from a set of six published in London in 1772 It does not seem to be connected to any of those operas His nickname in Italy less intimidating to pronounce than his Czech name was il boemo the Bohemian He met Leopold and Wolfgang Mozart in 1770 and became something of an adviser and role model to the blossoming composer ambitious for operatic success Wolfgang and Josef also happened to both be in Munich in October 1777 Wolfgang seeking a post at the court of the Elector Maximilian Josef being treated for a venereal disease that in the end thanks to a botched operation 7 2 S U M M E R M U S I K F E S T I VA L 2 0 1 9

resulted in the removal of his nose Mozart was reluctant to visit him in the hospital but guilt struggled with revulsion and won out People told me how much Myslive ek is always praising me and what a good and true friend he is then they described him to me he wrote in a letter to his father They nally met in the hospital garden Just look he said how unfortunate I am His words and his appearance which Papa knows already from earlier descriptions touched me so deeply that I couldn t say anything But Myslive ek s compliments did indeed buck up Mozart s spirits his e orts in Munich having come to nothing Mozart went on in that same letter quoting what people told him the older composer had been saying about him He always says that no one should feel superior for no one plays like Mozart In Italy where the greatest masters are they talk of no one but Mozart When his name is mentioned they all fall silent Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart 1756 1791 Clarinet Concerto in A Major K 622 1791 This work was the last of Mozart s collaborations with virtuoso clarinetist and fellow Mason Anton Stadler Earlier had come two chamber masterpieces the Trio for clarinet viola and piano K 498 and the Quintet for clarinet and strings K 581 The clarinet solos on some of the arias in his opera La clemenza di Tito were also intended for Stadler to play Mozart brought his friend to Prague to perform them at the work s premiere in 1791 The version of the clarinet concerto that we know was preceded by two others Mozart conceived the work for basset horn a sort of tenor clarinet with a less rich but quite beautiful and haunting tone The basset horn s preeminent showpiece in today s standard repertory is Mozart s Requiem which calls for a pair of them A fragment of an allegro movement 199 bars long in G Major dates from 1789 Mozart later reworked this transposing the sketch to A Major completing it and adding two movements during that busy autumn of 1791 This version was for an instrument of Stadler s own invention he added a few extra keys to his clarinet extending the range downward by four notes and giving it a hybrid name basset clarinet One more version was made for a clarinet of regular compass but not by Mozart an unknown hand transformed the solo part for the work s publication in 1801 None of Mozart s wind concertos or any of his violin concertos or later piano concertos for that matter were published during his life Mozart had exploited the full range of the basset clarinet especially Stadler s unique four bottom notes so there are quite a few alterations to the scales and arpeggios that dip down low discreet changes which never mar the gentle beauty of this work Mozart s last composition for orchestra Leopold Mozart 1719 87 Sinfonia for Bagpipes Hurdy Gurdy in D Major Peasant Wedding 1755 Aside from being the caretaker taskmaster of his son Wolfgang s genius Leopold Mozart is probably best remembered for the Versuch einer gr ndlichen Violinschule This instructional treatise on violin playing has done a yeoman s service in informing today s performers of 18th century music how to approach it how to do it how it should sound and what all those little marks mean Both his treatise and his son came out in 1756 and both were soon celebrated throughout Europe Starting in 1743 and ending about 20 years later when he devoted himself fulltime to teaching and touring his two children of his seven that survived infancy Wolfgang and his sister Maria Anna Leopold was a musical employee of the court of the Archbishop of Salzburg Nearly all his composition came from that pre touring period but he was proli c while it lasted church music symphonies concertos chamber music and keyboard pieces The works of his most often heard today form a small and uncharacteristic part of his output lighter programmatic works for orchestra usually with some kind of unusual scoring or sonic special e ects In addition to the piece on today s program he composed a Sinfonia da caccia with hunting horns a Sinfonia pastorale a Sinfonia burlesca a Musikalische Schlittenfahrt Musical Sleigh Ride with sleigh bells and likely the Toy Symphony long attributed to Joseph Haydn He wrote these for a group of amateur musicians the Musikliebende Gesellschaft in Salzburg The Peasant Wedding symphony includes a hurdy gurdy and bagpipes which mostly double S U M M E R M U S I K F E S T I VA L 2 0 1 9 7 3

the violin part in the opening march the middle sections of the two minuets and the rushing nale Leopold made some interesting comments on the central slow movement in a letter to the Gesellschaft The quiet part in it represents the modest regret of the bride but during the forte she is reinforced by all her friends to take heart so you have to observe the piano and forte well at all times Antonio Salieri 1750 1825 Overture to Cublai gran kan de Tartari 1788 For all his reputation as the hidebound conservative counterpart to Mozart s iconoclastic innovator Salieri was comparatively daring in his approach to opera subjects He mastered the Italian opera seria tradition handed down to him thoroughly enough that he was appointed director of the Italian court opera in Vienna at age 24 But he also wrote singspiele humble comic operas with spoken dialogue in German as well as hugely remunerative grand operas for the Paris Opera satisfying that city s taste for morally elevated treatments of historical subjects with plenty of scenic spectacle His operatic subjects included Don Quixote and Falsta He set a libretto by Beaumarchais the author of the play The Marriage of Figaro on which Mozart s opera was based and his nal opera in 1804 was the eyebrow raising Die Neger The Negroes Set on a Virginia plantation it concerned two clashing landowners one of whom spoiler alert disguises himself as the other s slave to expose his criminality After this he retired from stage composition to devote himself to church music and teaching As perhaps Vienna s most highly regarded teacher he counted Beethoven Schubert and Liszt among his students Then there was Cublai gran kan de Tartari for which Salieri had high hopes when he nished it in 1788 In the opera Cublai we know him as Kubla Khan has to decide who will succeed him on the throne his nephew or his mentally un t son He s being pulled in opposite directions by a scheming high priest and a manipulative European mistress Unfortunately though this was seen as it was intended as a barely disguised allegory of the rivalry between Russian half brothers and brie y co rulers Ivan V and Peter the Great Since at the time Austria was engaged as Russia s ally in a war against Turkey any opera that made Russia look bad was unperformable and it s surmised that Emperor Joseph II of whom Salieri was a favorite as anyone who s seen Amadeus knows personally advised the composer to shelve his potentially o ensive opera It was not performed until 1998 sic The rousing punchy overture however which works up a great deal of joyful noise in four minutes doesn t deserve its oblivion Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart 1756 1791 Symphony No 39 in E flat Major K 543 1788 The unknown origins of Mozart s last three symphonies No 39 in E at No 40 in G Minor and the Jupiter have become the stu of legend Some commentators have surrounded the works with an aura of dark mystery equal to that of his deathbed Requiem Why did he suddenly dash o three masterpieces in the summer of 1788 Though no proof of their performances exists Mozart had never been in the habit of writing pieces without speci c performances in mind In fact he had frequently abandoned magni cent half nished scores when concert plans fell through And it has long been known that he revised the wind parts of the G Minor symphony versions with and without clarinets exist It seems improbable if not perverse for Mozart to have made two orchestrations of a work he never planned to have performed Yet back in the days when being tragically misunderstood was considered a prerequisite to greatness the story got started that Mozart wrote his three greatest symphonies purely for self expression as art for art s sake and that the shallow cruelly neglectful society he lived in never cared enough to hear them performed If our knowledge of Mozart s attitude toward his own music doesn t explode this myth then the facts of that hectic summer he was desperate for money and began the long series of importunate letters to his end Michael Puchberg he moved on June 17 and his six month old daughter died a week later suggest that composition for any reason other than immediate practical need was out of the question Musicologist Neal Zaslaw in his book Mozart s Symphonies Context Performance Practice Reception suggests three possible motives for the symphonies composition a Viennese concert series scheduled for autumn 1788 a proposed trip to London or simply to sell to a publisher There is no particular reason to assume the concert series which is indeed mentioned in a letter to Puchberg never came o From the proceeds of my concerts in the Casino Mozart told Puchberg he planned to pay o an old debt 74 S U M M E R M U S I K F E S T I VA L 2 0 1 9

He also includes as a gesture of thanks two tickets to these concerts This letter seems to have been mis dated by Mozart scholars Wolfgang Hildesheimer suggests as coming from the spring of 1788 not the late summer thus the confusion about whether or not they allude to performances of the symphonies Also Mozart s surviving letters to Puchberg stop in August 1788 and do not resume until the following spring suggesting that his nancial situation did brie y improve with the take from the Casino concerts as he planned Zaslaw hypothesizes further performances of one or more of the last three symphonies in Dresden and Leipzig in 1789 Frankfurt in 1790 and in Vienna conducted by Mozart s nemesis Salieri in April 1791 It seems too that the symphonies were not only performed but published and distributed within Mozart s lifetime Zaslaw cites a 1790 music catalog from the publisher Westphal which mentions in a list of eight of Mozart s symphonies one 14 for 14 instruments in C and one 16 in E at these could only be Nos 41 and 39 Mozart completed No 39 on June 26 the very same day he completed the famous Piano Sonata in C K 545 The slow introduction moves through an amazing palette of moods majesty mystery and brilliance That wrenching dissonance in bar 18 always makes my jaw drop In the Allegro Mozart right away takes advantage of the fresh colors of the clarinet he was the rst composer to give the newlyborn clarinet its due in the orchestra and he uses them here as the middle woodwinds in place of the usual oboes The ashing downward scales from the introduction reappear a galloping long short short gure also makes its mark in this idea stu ed movement Stormy syncopated passages and moments of magical serenity set each other o most e ectively in the Andante Clarinet lovers get a further special treat in the Trio of the Minuet a German l ndler the bucolic father of the waltz with one clarinet taking the folklike tune and the other burbling along underneath The eet incomparably joyful Finale full of ashy violin work that recalls country ddling starts solidly in the home key of E at there s not an accidental in sight anywhere until bar 32 But soon after there s a surprising slip into F sharp Major and thereafter Mozart takes that little hook from bar 1 all over the harmonic map S U M M E R M U S I K F E S T I VA L 2 0 1 9 7 5
