Mozart Symphony No.41 in C major “Jupiter” (performed from memory)
Strauss Oboe Concerto in D major
Wolfgang Rihm Gejagte Form

Aurora is the only orchestra in the world to perform whole symphonies from memory, and in recent years it has electrified audiences at the BBC Proms and other major festivals with this uniquely direct and communicative performance style. On the penultimate evening of the 2016 Cambridge Summer Music Festival the orchestra will perform Mozart’s magisterial Symphony No.41 in C major “Jupiter” for the first time in history completely from memory. BBC Radio 3’s Tom Service joins Nicholas Collon as co-presenter, using the orchestra’s freedom from printed music to get right inside one of Mozart’s most extraordinary scores.

“Aurora is the most bracing breath of fresh air to invigorate the British classical music scene in the past ten years.”
