Ian Page’s kaleidoscopic MOZART 250 programmes have rapidly become a highlight of the London concert calendar. This typically wide-ranging and illuminating overview of the musical year 1772 features magnificent symphonies by Mozart and Haydn and exquisite arias by such largely forgotten composers as Traetta and Gassmann.
Ian Page conducts his dynamic period-instrument orchestra and two outstanding young sopranos: Chiara Skerath has recently made acclaimed debuts at the Salzburg Festival and the Opéra de Paris, while Jessica Cale won the prestigious Kathleen Ferrier Award in 2020.
Duration: approx. 2 hours (incl. 20-minute interval)
