DOVE, HAYDN, LIGETI, MOZART - Composers

CLEMENS SCHULDT - Conductor

Jonathan Dove’s concertos are often more than they seem, for example, his flute concerto The Magic Flute Dances imagines the life of the magic flute after the end of Mozart’s eponymous opera. His new Accordion Concerto promises to be a fitting tribute to Sir Peter Maxwell Davies, drawing influences from his love of Orkney. Max had been commissioned to write the concerto for accordion virtuoso Owen Murray, but sadly he passed away just as he was about to start work on it.   Mozart and Haydn are both in high spirits in their symphonies here – Haydn plays a joke that is sure to catch you out – while Ligeti is in rustic, folksy mood.

“Unquestionably the finest player and teacher in Britain. Can be compared to Segovia for his supreme virtuosity and also for his success in demonstrating the great potential of an undervalued instrument.” The Times on Owen Murray
