This concert is made special by its participants: The Dutch organist and conductor Ton Koopman is one of the leading lights of the movement to promote the authentic performance of early music, while Gábor Tarkövi is the principal trumpet player of the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra and a teacher at the Karajan Academy.
Mozart composed his Symphony No. 19 aged 16. The work is notable for its use of four horns with a uniquely high pitch. Haydn's Trumpet Concerto was the composer's final concerto. He wrote the piece in 1796, when the valve ...trumpet was still considered an innovation. Haydn's influence can still be felt in Beethoven's Symphony No. 2, although the symphony also features the impressive power that would characterise Beethoven's later work. It is music that shines with serenity and optimism, something made all the more remarkable by the knowledge that its creation coincided with the famous Heiligenstadt Testament, in which the composer bade farewell to the world and confessed his irreversible deafness.
