Mozart’s Czech Mates

26 September 2022 – Wigmore Hall, 7.30pm

Mozart felt that the people of Prague appreciated his music more than anyone else, and many of the most influential and highly-regarded composers of his era were Bohemians. This dynamic programme is framed by two vibrantly dramatic G minor symphonies, and it also features three arias and a startlingly visceral scene from Benda’s melodrama Medea.

There will be a free pre-performance talk by conductor Ian Page at 6.00pm. This will take place in the Bechstein Room and will last for c.45 minutes.
