The Ages of Mozart: Angela Hewitt

This concert is open for priority booking for LMP Friends from 22-25 April. General on-sale goes live on Friday 26 April.

Programme to include:

Mozart Symphony No.1 in E flat major, K.16
Mozart Piano Concerto No.9 in E flat Major, K.271 ‘Jeunehomme’
Mozart Symphony No.36 in C Major, K.425 ‘Linz’
Jonathan Bloxham conductor
Angela Hewitt piano/director

Mozart didn’t spend his 35-year-long life twiddling his thumbs. In fact, we wrote over 200 hours of music; that’s more than a solid week of back-to-back Mozart.

This concert won’t be a week long (thankfully) but it will be a whistle-stop tour of Mozart’s career, providing snapshots of how the musical legend came to be.

On the tour you’ll hear everything from Mozart’s very first symphony – an impressive feat for an 8-year-old by any standards – to one of his last, No.36 ‘Linz’. Say a prayer for the musicians during this finale; adrenaline-junkie Mozart instructs them to ‘play as fast as possible’. World-renowned concert pianist Angela Hewitt performs Mozart’s ‘Jeunehomme’ piano concerto – a technically wicked piece written in his early twenties.
