Tippett/Corelli, Britten, Bach, Mozart evening by the
The Academy of St Martin in the Fields is one of the most prestigious chamber orchestras not only in the United Kingdom but in the world.
Their programme brings together two aesthetic and musical universes that respond to each other some two hundred years apart: on the one hand, J.S. Bach (here in the sublime Violin Concerto in A minor) and Mozart (with his youthful Symphony No. 29) are the two historical models against which all musicians lay the foundations of their own language.
On the other hand, Britten and Tippett, two of the most brilliant representatives of twentieth-century British music, in works that are typically 'neo-classical': in his famous Simple Symphony (1934), Britten seems to be having fun imitating classical Viennese models; as for Tippett's Fantasia Concertante, it is a marvellous homage to Corelli for the 300th anniversary of his birth (1953).
