In 2017 we will look back 250 years with the following four projects:
17 January 2017, 7.30pm – Wigmore Hall, London
This concert will include Mozart’s Symphony No. 6 and his cantata, Grabmusik, alongside works by his contemporaries J. C. Bach, Gluck, Haydn, Abel and Arne.
21 and 22 March 2017, 7.30pm – St John’s Smith Square
Mozart’s first stage work, composed when he was just eleven years old. This will be a fully staged production, featuring the winner of the 2016 Kathleen Ferrier Award tenor Alessandro Fisher.
Ian Page and the Orchestra of Classical Opera are joined by the award winning fortepianist Kristian Bezuidenhout to perform Mozart’s first four keyboard concertos.
12 & 13 June 2017, 7.30pm – St John’s Smith Square
The second of Mozart’s two stage works from 1767, this opera will be sung in Latin and is based on a colourful story from Ovid’s Metamorphoses. The production will see St John’s Smith Square in a format never before used, with the performance space occupying the East side of the church.
