Mozart and Calla Lilies
Schreker’s Chamber Symphony is a feat of agility and virtuosity, demanding a soloistic vigour from all 24 instrumentalists. An exploration of post-WWI Germanic music, this piece is an exciting innovation to the traditional Germanic style. Mozart’s “Prague” Symphony on the other hand is representative of true Germanic traditions. Laced with cheeky Mozartian melodies and wit, it is a reminder of not only Mozart’s greatness but his staying power for centuries. Featuring the TBSO’s Principal Oboist Colleen Kennedy, Mozetich’s Calla Lilies is a hauntingly beautiful impressionistic piece, offering a lyrical change of pace.
