La clemenza di Tito was started after Die Zauberflöte and commissioned by emperor Leopold II to counterbalance the revolutionary forces in Europe threatening the monarchy. The story of Emperor Tito terminates in Epiphany with the martial impulsion of brass instruments and the passionate flame of strings. The positive note of the finale softens the political plots and love passions of this brilliant opera seria.

The “Jeunehomme” concerto’s structure is unique in Mozart’s catalogue: the soloist immediately dialogues with a grandiose and affirmative orchestra in a long introduction. The climax of the concerto appears in the third movement, a rondo initiated by vivid and royal piano parts.

Brahms wrote his second symphony in the same key as his famous Violin Concerto in D Major while he was staying in the Austrian Alps. The classical composition technique is in the line of Beethoven’s Pastorale. In a strong contrast with his dark first symphony, his spirited themes create a fresh and joyful atmosphere.
