Tchaikovsky didn’t just enjoy Mozart’s music: he practically worshipped it, and in ‘Mozartiana’ he drenched it in his own, unmistakable combination of uninhibited affection and glowing orchestral colour. It’s the sweetest imaginable way to end a concert that begins with a luminous evocation of an Orkney wedding by Martin Dalby, the much-missed former Head of Music for BBC Scotland who died in 2018. But light creates shade, and Martyn Brabbins links these two labours of love with Schnittke’s altogether more sardonic tribute to Mozart, and Mussorgsky’s Songs and Dances of Death. Don’t be misled by the title: you’ll never hear anything more blackly comic – or a more compelling showcase for a great voice.
