Labadie Conducts Mozart's "Jupiter"

Mozart brings the Classical symphony to a glorious apotheosis, while Beethoven heralds a new age of violin concertos. The “Jupiter”—Mozart’s final symphony—has grandeur in its opening movement, tenderness in its Andante, grace and wit in the Menuetto, and propulsive joy in its finale. The antecedents of the large scale, athletic violin concertos of the Romantic era are found in Beethoven’s masterpiece. His Violin Concerto is broader in scope, more opulently orchestrated, and features a solo part unlike anything that came before it. There is also a rarely performed work by Mozart’s Swedish contemporary, Joseph Martin Kraus.
