Even in the most cheerful, most harmonic of Mozart’s music there is nearly always, somewhere in it, a darker side, a passing evil spirit, a more dour and dramatic musical gesture. It says a lot that even in his very earliest works there were regular flashes into the deepest depths of the soul, as though the master was flirting with a sense of danger. On the other hand, the ‘Great’ G minor symphony and Requiem do not merely glimpse into the shrouded regions of the soul, they actually take a tour there. No surprise then to find just how much the post-Mozart Romantic age thrilled to these ‘spine-tingling travelogues’.
