This season’s Classics explore great works of Sturm und Drang (Storm and Stress), when extremes of emotion were given free reign in contrast to the constraints of classicism. Mozart’s Symphony No. 25, prominently featured throughout the film Amadeus, was a key work of Sturm und Drang. You’ll also hear Vaughn Williams’ exquisite Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis.
