1773 – A Retrospective

17 January 2023 – Wigmore Hall, 7.30pm

This entertaining and illuminating selection of works composed in 1773 begins with one of Mozart’s most genial middle-period symphonies and ends with his first enduringly popular masterpiece. In between, Haydn’s famed horn writing takes the instrument to the almost ridiculous extremes of its compass, while soprano Alexandra Lowe, making her eagerly anticipated company début, sings arias that are by turns dramatic, lyrical and virtuosic.

There will be a free pre-performance talk by Ian Page at 6.15pm.

“Typical generosity from Page and company; his programming always goes beyond the call of duty in bringing the obscure to light and offering true revelation.”
