Royal Philharmonic Orchestra Leader Duncan Riddell directs a programme centred around the legendary and prodigious Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, beginning with his sonorous and joyful Sinfonia Concertante for violin, viola and orchestra.

Mozart’s Symphony No. 40, sometimes nicknamed the ‘Great’, is one of his final three symphonies. This is a symphony full of expressive intensity and personal utterances that went on to inspire many great composers, including Beethoven, Schubert and Mendelssohn.

In the middle of the concert is a work by the often-neglected Joseph Boulogne, Chevalier de Saint-Georges, a contemporary of Mozart’s, who was a gifted composer and music teacher to Marie Antoinette. It is suggested that a jealous Mozart once borrowed an idea from Saint-Georges in his Sinfonia Concertante.

This is a socially distanced performance.

Duration: approx. 75 minutes (no interval)
