Southwell Music Festival talk: Mozart in 1780s Vienna

Saturday, August 26 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Southwell Library, The Bramley Centre, King Street
Southwell, NG25 0EH United Kingdom
+ Google Map

Libby gives a pre-concert talk on Mozart’s Mass in C minor, one of the great unfinished pieces. Given the pressures he was under at the time perhaps this is not surprising – a famous public figure in celebrity-conscious Vienna with pressing domestic demands and constant financial insecurity. The lecture will explore these and other fascinating aspects of Mozart’s life and how they shaped his music.

Southwell Music Festival: French Chamber Classics

Sunday, August 27 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Southwell Minster, Church Street
Southwell, Nottinghamshire NG25 0HD United Kingdom
+ Google Map

The remarkable conjunction of French compositional genius in the late 19th and early 20th centuries is celebrated in this programme. Debussy’s evocative Syrinx and a rare performance of Poulenc’s dramatic and entertaining Le bal masqué frame a programme of masterpieces – including Ravel’s Mother Goose Suite for four hands at one piano: the performance reunites the team of Burgess and Baillieu who brought us The Rite of Spring so memorably in 2015.
