Mozart: Symphony No.1
Theofanidis: Bassoon Concerto TSO Premiere
Schubert: Symphony No. 4, “Tragic”
- Martin Kuuskmann earned a 2017 Grammy® nomination for his recording of Christopher Theofanidis’ Bassoon Concerto which Theofanidis composed for him.
- Mozart’s first and last symphonies have something in common: in the second movement of his first, the eight-year old makes use of the four note motif that appears in the finale of Symphony No. 41, “Jupiter”.
- Symphony No. 4 was composed when Schubert was 19 years old but was not performed until 1849, more than two decades after he died.
