Markus Stenz conducts the London Philharmonic in a concert from the Royal Festival Hall, London. Mozart: Symphony No 41. Turnage: On Opened Ground (with Lawrence Power: viola).

Live from the Royal Festival Hall, London.

Presented by Petroc Trelawny.

Mozart's final symphony, the Jupiter, is wonderfully exuberant work, with both turbulent and lyrical themes leading up to a glorious finale. Mark-Anthony Turnage wrote On Opened Ground ten years ago for the viola soloist Yuri Bashmet. Today's star violist Lawrence Power takes on the role of the brooding protagonist.

The final work has one of the most famous openings of all, after which Strauss takes his listeners on a wickedly exciting, touchingly tender and intensely dramatic journey, all inspired by the philisophical writings of Nietsche.
