Mozart in Italy 1770

Weekend at Cadogan Hall 6 - 8 March 2020

Legend: copyright opera classic
Following our acclaimed ‘Mozart in London’ weekend in 2015, we continue MOZART 250 with a three-day mini-festival at Cadogan Hall exploring the music that Mozart composed and heard in Italy during the course of 1770.

Featured works by Mozart include symphonies, concert arias and highlights and first drafts from Mitridate, re di Ponto, and the programme also includes excerpts from largely forgotten operas including Guglielmi’s Ruggiero, Piccinni’s Cesare in Egitto, Mysliveček’s La Nitteti and Jommelli’s Armida abbandonata, that were heard by Mozart in Verona, Milan, Bologna and Naples respectively. There will also be a series of talks and illustrated lectures by leading scholars including Cliff Eisen and Sergio Durante.

The outstanding line-up of award-winning soloists includes sopranos Sarah Aristidou, Samantha Clarke and Kiandra Howarth, tenor Stuart Jackson, and mezzo-soprano Rachel Kelly.
