“The music is not in the notes, but in the silence in between.” – Mozart

From the majestic music of Wagner

to the exquisite songs of Strauss, we finally arrive to “Jupiter” to enjoy one of the most accomplished

symphonies of the classical period: Mozart’s no. 41. The genius of these three composers is almost unparalleled, and although their music is hugely contrasting, you will find the common beauty among all these compositions.

Praised by the New York Times for her ability to turn from “strong and vindictive to melting and back in an instant,” American soprano Julia Wolcott will be featured in the Strauss’s Selection of songs for Soprano.
