In 2017 we looked back 250 years with the following four projects:
17 January 2017, 7.30pm – Wigmore Hall, London
This concert included Mozart’s Symphony No. 6 and his cantata, Grabmusik, alongside works by his contemporaries J. C. Bach, Gluck, Haydn, Abel and Arne.
21 March 2017, 7.30pm – St John’s Smith Square
Mozart’s first stage work, composed when he was just eleven years old. This was a fully staged production, featuring the winner of the 2016 Kathleen Ferrier Award tenor Alessandro Fisher.
Ian Page and the Orchestra of Classical Opera were 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, sung in Latin, is based on a colourful story from Ovid’s Metamorphoses.
