We’re delighted to present this evening of Mozart’s music, performed by members of one of the UK’s leading chamber orchestras, with illustrated introductions from a renowned Mozart expert.
The ‘Kegelstatt’ trio and Clarinet Quintet are two of Mozart’s most famous late chamber works. Mozart’s violin sonatas played an important role in his Viennese career. Termed ‘accompanied sonatas’ (the violin accompanying the piano), they were the most popular form of instrumental-music publication in 1780s Vienna.
Simon P. Keefe is President Elect of the Royal Musical Association and the author of five monographs on Mozart, including the musical biography Mozart in Vienna: the Final Decade (Cambridge University Press, 2017).
