Soloists of the London Philharmonic Orchestra
John Ryan horn
Mozart Horn Quintet in E flat, K407
Strauss Sextet from ‘Capriccio’
Schubert String Quintet in C, D956
Mozart’s Quintet for horn and strings (with two violas) is a miniature showpiece with all the melodic appeal of his full-scale horn concertos: the solo part is taken by the London Philharmonic Orchestra’s Principal Horn player, John Ryan. The Prelude to Richard Strauss’s last opera, Capriccio, is a self-contained movement for string sextet, rich in texture and full of rococo decoration. These two works precede and complement the String Quintet (with two cellos) which Schubert composed in the last months of his short life, one of the greatest and most profound masterpieces in the entire chamber music repertoire.
This performance takes place at Wigmore Hall.
