Mozart in Italy
6-8 March, - Cadogan Hall, London
Following our acclaimed ‘Mozart in London’ weekend in 2015, we continue MOZART 250 with a three-day mini-festival at Cadogan Hall exploring the music that Mozart composed and heard in Italy during the course of 1770.
Featured works by Mozart include symphonies, concert arias and highlights and first drafts from Mitridate, re di Ponto. The programme also includes excerpts from largely forgotten operas including Guglielmi’s Ruggiero, Piccinni’s Cesare in Egitto, Mysliveček’s La Nitteti and Jommelli’s Armida abbandonata, that were heard by Mozart in Verona, Milan, Bologna and Naples respectively.
The weekend also includes talks and illustrated lectures by leading scholars including Cliff Eisen and Sergio Durante.
“Page plays Mozart’s childhood music with utter respect and no condescension, and it is always a joy.”
