Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Symphony No. 41 “Jupiter” in C major, K. 551
Following On Air’s global success of its inaugural classical music event last December with Ludwig van Beethoven’s 9th Symphony, we will this September stream the final part of our 2021-spanning classical series.
Having streamed Johannes Brahms’ ‘Symphony No. 4 in E minor’ in May, and Antonin Dvořak’s ‘Symphony No. 9 in E minor (New World Symphony)’ in June, across the weekend of September 10/11/12 we will stream Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s‘Symphony No. 41 in C major (Jupiter Symphony)’.
Mozart's visionary 41st Symphony, named "Jupiter" by critics as it is an example of divine perfection, is one of the most complex and exciting compositions ever made, representing the fullest possibilities of mankind.
With Austrian conductor Johannes Vogel conducting a 40-strong Synchron Stage Orchestra (30 strings, 5 woodwinds, 4 brass, 1 percussion), the recording will be captured in Vienna’s state-of-the-art Synchron Stage recording facility. Combining high-end production, set design and atmospheric lighting, viewers will be able to stream the performance in stunning 4K UHD resolution and Dolby Atmos sound.
Speaking of the upcoming performance, Johannes Vogel said: “I have chosen thus Mozart symphony as an example of the remarkable capabilities of the human mind; what we can achieve through our creativity and positivity to make the world a better place to live in. There are always ways to shape how we live despite our circumstances, and music has the power to provide the light, clarity, and insight that is needed to help us move forward.”
Previously, Johannes Vogel has worked with orchestras including Vienna Philharmonic and Opernhaus Zürich. In his other roles as composer and producer, he’s worked for film and TV shows including ‘His Dark Materials’ and ‘Crimson Peak’.
