Mannheim Rocket in the Hills

Mannheim Rocket transports listeners back to the explosive birth of the modern symphonic style of Mannheim in the late 18th-century. The then cutting-edge orchestral sinfonias of Stamitz and Richter were a significant influence on the young Mozart, whose fifth violin concerto – nicknamed the Turkish and performed by Rachael Beesley – inhabits a hazy world of love and intrigue, and the finale of Mozart’s Symphony No.40 contains the most famous ascending musical rocket of all.
