Notes

The fifth symphony is remarkable in that the compelling energy of the entire first movement is derived from only a short opening motive of four notes. Literally every element is derived from this motive. Even the “contrasting” second subject is built upon the melodic outlines of the first bars and is accompanied by the motive itself.

The performance of Mozart's 40th was amazing. How Maestro Wilson conceived and brought forth the intensity, tension, and considerable emotion moved me deeply. The orchestra's discipline and preciseness were astonishing. When you've got only two horns, two oboes, two bassoons, and two clarinets, there's no room to fudge the pitch in the opening note of a phrase. I loved the way the horns and basses supported and colored the melodies.

As you can tell, I'm not a musician, but I am a huge Mozart fan. I'm also a huge fan of the Redlands Symphony and count myself fortunate to be able to attend a local concert of such glorious music.
