Live in Concert – Haydn and Mozart – Australian Chamber Orchestra
The album was recorded during their concerts at Sydney’s City Recital Hall in 2013, and begins with Haydn’s Symphony No. 49, followed by Mozart’s Symphony No. 25. It closes with Haydn’s Symphony No. 104.
“Haydn’s music is full of wit,” said Tognetti. “His depth of spirit and ingenuity, and breadth of impact, have forged a musical DNA that runs through Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Mahler, Bruckner and beyond.”
John Brunning plays a track from his featured Drive Discovery at 6.20pm every weekday.
Beethoven Symphonies Nos. 5 & 7 – NDR Radiophilharmonie
Following the success of their Mendelssohn symphonies series, the NDR Radiophilharmonie and Chief Conductor Andrew Manze come together again for this new release.
The album includes two of Beethoven’s most recognisable symphonies – his Seventh, and what is arguably the composer’s most famous symphony – his Fifth.
The combination of Manze’s experience with the skilful sounds of the German orchestra produces an album filled with exceptional recordings of these early nineteenth-century works.
