Mozart Fest 2022 Final Concert
1 October 2022
£16.00 Full, £12.00 Concession, £8.00 Student
Join us for Mozart's deeply-moving Requiem in D Minor K626, a work full of dramatic fire and tender lyricism. Our concert also includes Mozart's fine Piano Concerto in C major, K415, composed in Vienna in 1782-3 for one of Mozart's subscription concerts. Andrew Campling's 'A time to mourn; and a time to dance' completes the programme.
Mozart's Requiem in D minor K626 is a work full of dramatic fire and tender lyricism, rendered even more poignant by the composer's tragic death at the age of 35, leaving the Requiem incomplete. Completed by his pupil Sussmayr the Requiem displays Mozart's extraordinary ability to compose music of ethereal beauty and transcendent power.
His Piano Concerto in C major K415 reveals the composer's more playful side, with music of sparkling wit and elegant refinement. As usual Mozart never wastes a single note - pace the remark attributed to Emperor Joseph II about one of the composer's operas: 'too many notes!'. This evening's programme is completed by Andrew Campling's 'A time to mourn; and a time to dance'.
Commissioned by Julia Payne, this work for solo piano and strings was composed during the height of the Covid pandemic. The work received its first performance last year at a concert in Southwark Cathedral.
