Mozart's last three symphonies: the composer's symphonic legacy and a high point of the classical repertoire
It is an irony of history that, although hundreds of works have dealt with this brilliant trilogy of symphonies, no musicologist has ever been able to say with any certainty what led Mozart to compose these last three symphonies! We know they date from 1788 and were completed in just three months. It will be a sheer pleasure to hear this music performed under the baton of one of the greatest conductors of the Baroque and Classical repertoire, Sir Roger Norrington. How fortunate that he can return so frequently to lead the Orchestre de chambre de Paris! He will undoubtedly render a very limpid reading of these symphonies, which bring the Classical period to a close..
