Saturday 16th February
Conductor: Damian Iorio
Mozart - domeneo ballet music
Mozart - Symphony No. 36 Linz
Mozart - Symphony No. 41 Jupiter
You will leave this concert knowing more about Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart as a man and with a greater appreciation of the wonderful music that he composed. Mozart wrote many letters during his time in Vienna, from 1782 until his death in 1791. This correspondence – both humorous and insulting – provides insights into the composer’s character, his relationships, including with his wife Constanze, and the sources of his musical inspiration. Readings from the letters, selected by Damian Iorio, will put into context the ballet music and two full symphonies, including Mozart’s longest and last.
