A tale of two wives lies behind this grand programme. Mozartís future wife, Constanze Weber was the intended soloist for the ravishing soprano writing in the Et Incarnatus Est of his mass Ė an utterly sublime and arresting moment of pure love in music. Silvestrovís The Messenger harks back to Mozart in a touching memorial for his own wife who died suddenly in her 40s.

The symphony between them needs no introduction: one of Mozartís most famous and dramatic statements.

Valentin Silvestrov : The Messenger
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart : Symphony No 40
