York Early Music Festival: B'Rock Orchestra
Sunday 9 July 2017
Sir Jack Lyons Concert Hall
Concertmaster, Rodolfo Richter
PASSIONS OF THE NIGHT
Haydn Symphony No. 49 in F minor, 'La passione'
Boccherini Symphony in D minor ‘La casa del diabolo’
Mozart Serenade in D major, K239 ‘Serenata notturna’
Mozart Symphony No. 33 in B flat major, K319
Belgian-based orchestra B’Rock perform four colourful and contrasted works from the 1770s: Haydn’s Symphony No. 49 is a sombre evocation of Christ’s passion; Boccherini’s powerful work (‘The house of the devil’) is closely based on a famous piece of infernal music from Gluck’s Orphée et Euridice; Mozart’s Serenata notturna is scored for two small orchestras; and his amiable Symphony No. 33 bubbles with promise for the great symphonies soon to come.
