We are delighted to welcome back the ever-dynamic Kungsbacka Piano Trio to open our Exploring Mozart weekend.
Mozart’s final piano trios see the composer at the height of his powers. The Trio in E is considered by many to be the finest of his trios, with an abundance of memorable tunes. The Trio in G features a captivating set of variations which gives way to a remarkable finale, charging to a jovial close. The Trio in C is truly celebratory; the opening features a call to attention and bravura passages, the slow movement is a heartfelt aria, and the finale is teasing and flirtatious.
This promises to be an evening of infectious and joyous music-making.
Pre-concert Talk, 6.45pm
To launch our Mozart weekend, Professor Derek Beales from the University of Cambridge asks how much Emperor Joseph II knew and cared about music, and examines the impact he had on Mozart’s career.
