Ian Page’s visionary MOZART 250 series continues to build a widespread and highly enthusiastic following.
The first of The Mozartists’ concerts since lockdown is a diverse and illuminating overview of the musical year 1771, featuring an exquisite selection of works that were composed and premiered 250 years ago. These include an un-numbered Mozart symphony, beautiful vocal rarities by Mysliveček and Salieri and an astonishingly original concerto by C.P.E. Bach, and the programme culminates with Haydn’s magnificent ‘Trauer’ symphony, whose elegiac slow movement the composer was said to have wanted to be performed at his funeral.
The soloists are former BBC New Generation Artist Kitty Whately and acclaimed harpsichordist Steven Devine, and Ian Page conducts his outstanding period-instrument orchestra.
