Aurora fits St George’s like a glove: a young, dynamic orchestra that plays with spirit and passion, delivering thrilling and imaginative programmes. For this concert Aurora turns its gaze to Vienna, the creative capital that was home to the greatest classical composers of all time. The players trace a path from one of Mozart’s earliest piano concertos, bright and virtuosic, to a late masterpiece by Mahler, Das Lied von der Erde. This epic song cycle is performed with
two world-class soloists in an exquisite arrangement that distils the symphonic scoring to an intimate 16-player version. The result is a jewel-like reduction in which the individual instrumental and vocal lines sing out with radiance and utter clarity.
