Berlioz’s stirring overture, Les Francs-Juges, is the earliest of his works regularly heard today; like several Berlioz overtures, it was part of an abandoned large-scale project – in this case an opera. Mitsuko Uchida, renowned for her interpretations of the Viennese classics, joins the SCO for what was probably the last of Mozart’s 23 piano concertos; this radiant work is noted for containing a quotation from one of Mozart’s own songs. Song-like melodies also abound in Dvořák’s Eighth Symphony. Here, the composer set himself the task of writing a symphony different from all his others; for most listeners, however, it represents quintessential Dvořák.
