'Johann Sebastian Bach is inextricably tied to the city of Leipzig, where he was Cantor of the St Thomas School from 1723 until his death in 1750, during which time he led performances of his own cantatas each Sunday. Musicians from the Gewandhaus Orchestra continue this tradition to this day, performing Bach cantatas with the St Thomas Choir in the St Thomas Church Leipzig every week. 

Mozart’s Serenade in C minor was composed shortly before the composer travelled to Leipzig to perform in the Gewandhaus in 1789. The defiantly dark and mysterious character of this work for wind octet introduces Richard Strauss’ contemplative study, “Metamorphosen”. Originally for 23 solo strings and performed here in the version for string septet, Strauss, who regularly conducted the Gewandhaus Orchestra in performances of his own operas from 1915 onwards, explores the idea of metamorphosis in this dramatic and moving work, composed in the aftermath of World War II.'
