Welcome to the master of historical performance, Reinhard Goebel, for a concert dedicated to the genius that is Mozart, and his friends.
Mozart wrote Symphony No 31 for the Parisian taste for colour and excitement, and it instantly grabs your attention with its energy and brilliant vitality. The SCO's own award-winning Principal Horn Alec Frank-Gemmill presents the irresistible Horn Concerto No 4 on Natural Horn, and Mozart’s richly scored, dignified and noble orchestral interlude from Idomeneo also features, reflecting the opera’s central theme of averted disaster and final harmonious conclusion.
JC Bach was a true cosmopolitan, and a composer greatly admired by Mozart. His accomplished opera Amadis de Gaule was premiered in Paris in 1779. The concert also includes music by Mozart’s close friend Michael Haydn and a short work by his father Leopold.
