Tonight's Full Works Concert opens with Leopold Stokowski ’s orchestral transcription of Bach ’s dramatic Toccata and Fugue

Catherine Bott  also features Chopin ’s well-loved Piano Concerto No.1 , and Mozart ’s crowd-pleasing 'Jupiter' Symphony.  The symphony was written by Mozart during a prolific seven-week spell in the summer of 1788 when he produced three fully formed symphonies. But its planetary name was probably coined by the impresario Johann Peter Salomon and first used in a concert programme for the Philharmonic Society of London 26 years after Mozart died.
