“I’m sure you know that Mozart’s compositional talent was so effortless, it feels like he was taking dictation directly from some higher source. Nowhere is that more apparent than in his last symphony, the Jupiter. In the finale of that work, Mozart introduces five distinct melodies one by one — and then, without batting an eye, he combines all five of them together in perfect counterpoint and harmony. No other composer before or since has achieved such a feat. It’s absolutely extraordinary, and to play or listen to this piece is to connect with the divine.” – Scott Speck, Music Director
