Trumpet Concerto E flat major, WoO 1

A diary entry by Franz Schubert from 1816 states: “O Mozart, immortal Mozart, how many, oh infinite benevolent imprints of a lighter, better life you have stamped on our souls.” The Vienna native, who was 19 years old at the time, wrote his Fifth Symphony shortly thereafter. The proximity to Symphony No. 40 in G minor by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, which will also be performed at this concert by the international festival orchestra under the direction of Ton Koopman, can be felt above all in the instrumentation and the thematic work. Unlike Mozart, who in his penultimate symphony adopts a melancholy, sensual tone, Schubert’s Fifth sparkles with lightness and freshness. The early romantic trumpet concerto by Johann Nepomuk Hummel will round out the evening. Decorated with numerous cantilenas, figurations, and trills, it demands excellent dexterity and a fast tongue from the soloist. The Russian Sergei Nakariakov, also known as the “Paganini of the trumpet,” makes this look like an easy task. Thanks to his unrivaled technique, he succeeds in delivering the craziest runs and trickiest jumps without a care in the world.
