Bright Young Things
feat. Strauss, Mozart, Debussy, Schubert & Stravinsky
Look down the role call of major composers and it's staggering how many of their great works were written when they were comparatively young.
So that's what we're celebrating with this collection, and we've book-ended it with two glittering and sumptuously scored orchestral numbers: Strauss's Don Juan to open, and Stravinsky's ballet, The Firebird, to close. Then at the collection's centre point, there's an orchestral work taking the bright young things theme from a slightly different angle: Debussy's recently rediscovered First Suite for Orchestra, written whilst he was still a student, which instead gives us fascinating pre-whispers of the instantly-recognisable language he then fixed upon in his early maturity. Nestled either side of that are two major chamber works: Mozart's Piano Sonata No 11 with its famous Rondo “Alla turca” final movement, and Schubert's deftly written Octet.
