1769: A Year in Music on Tuesday 29th January 2019

This fascinating and wide-ranging survey sets works by the 13-year-old Mozart – including a recently rediscovered concert aria – alongside an array of other pieces that were being composed in the same year. These include the first movement of a symphony by Mozart’s own father and two arias from Thomas Arne’s Ode commissioned for David Garrick’s 1769 Shakespeare Jubilee. Also featured are arias by Paisiello, Grétry and Gluck, and the concert closes with Haydn’s resplendent ‘Maria Theresia’ symphony, one of the greatest and most exciting of his middle-period works.

This concert marks the launch of the fifth year of our acclaimed MOZART 250 series.
