Beethoven’s Leonore Overture – which he wrote for his opera Fidelio – concentrates the grandeur of the opera into a brief but potent orchestra masterpiece. Strauss’ Second Horn Concerto, featuring Dayton Philharmonic Principal Horn Aaron Brant, is a classical-style fantasy written during the dark days of World War II. Schubert’s charming incidental music for Rosamunde outshone and outlasted the play for which it was written. Mozart’s “Jupiter” Symphony is last on this program of orchestral heavyweights and is widely lauded as the pinnacle of his instrumental music.
