At the time of its creation, Vanhal’s symphonies were ranked among the best symphonic compositions, and they were published by publishers in Paris, London, Vienna, Amsterdam and Berlin. The fame of the composer of Czech origin reached as far as America. His symphonies were also performed by his famous colleague Joseph Haydn, whose composition will follow.

Haydn’s Concerto in E-flat major from 1796 is one of the essential pillars of the trumpet literature. It was a curiosity because it was written for valve trumpets. Haydn’s friend, trumpeter Anton Weidinger began experimenting with this instrument and the composer got carried away by his friend’s excitement.

Mozart composed his Symphony in C major “Jupiter” in Vienna in 1788. Author of the nickname “Jupiter”, which symbolizes the monumentality of the symphony, is most likely London violinist and musical impresario J. P. Salomon. Symphony “Jupiter” is the best proof of Mozart’s mastery and it confirms his upfront position among the composers of most significance.

The concert is held in cooperation with the statutory city of Opava, the Opava Cultural Organization and with the financial support of the Moravian-Silesian Region.
