Symphonic Last Words: late works of Haydn & Mozart

Sat 26th November, Colyer-Fergusson Hall, 7.30pm

with Lees Court Music

Tickets at £15 and £8 available from the Gulbenkian Box Office

Our Winter Concert presents the late music of two of the most innovative and revered composers of the classical era.  The first half celebrates the work of Mozart and the programme begins with the overture to his opera La Clemenza di Tito, commissioned to celebrate the coronation of Leopold II as King of Bohemia in mid-1791 some 6 months before Mozart's death, and probably written concurrently with the motet, Ave Verum Corpus, which follows it in the programme and will be performed the chamber choir Lees Court Music.  Mozart’s 40th, is one of only two minor symphonies, both of which are in the key of G minor.  It is a darkly emotional work written in the last year of his life together with the 39th & 41st symphonies, believed by some critics to form a triptych.  The second half of the concert features the work of Haydn, beginning with the popular motet Insanae et vanae curae, reworked late in the composers life from an earlier oratorio.  The concert concludes with Haydn’s final symphony No.104, known as The London Symphony and, in fact, the last of a series of twelve London Symphonies. The work was composed in 1795 and established itself immediately as a firm favourite of concertgoers.
