In the 19th century, someone took the trouble to give each orchestral instrument a certificate of character. It was the composer Hector Berlioz, who found sharp-tongued words, but was downright enthusiastic about one instrument: “The trombone is, in my opinion, the true head of that family of wind instruments. It possesses the highest degree of nobility and grandeur; it has all the serious and powerful sounds of sublime musical poetry, from religious, imposing and calm accents to the raging outbursts of an orgy.” When the Mozart Festival invites the Würzburg Philharmonic Orchestra to its traditional night music, this year the trombone is given a place of honor. In the Concertino by the romantic Ferdinand David, it is able to show off all its outstanding qualities and bathe the illuminated Hofgarten in festive musical splendor. Antonín Dvořák’s quintessentially Bohemian 8th Symphony brings the night music to a close with exuberant orchestral colors.
