At once joyous, wistful, eerie and unfailingly beautiful, Mozart's Symphony No.40 in G minor shows a genius in utter command of his powers. It's the perfect capstone to a Seattle Symphony concert event that begins with Beethoven's lone opera overture, the dramatic Leonore. Sandwiched between these two colossal bookends, Josef Haydn's mirthful Sinfonia Concertante provides an emotional counterpoint to Gabriel Faur��'s Elegy for Cello, a mournful statement whose baritonal human timbres will reach out and fill Benaroya Hall's Taper Auditorium with powerful feeling.
