Our early Summer concert opens with the Divertimento in Bb for Strings by Mozart. This a light and entertaining piece, completed when the composer was still a teenager working in Salzburg.
The concert continues with our own principal cellist, Mandy Thorpe, performing the ever-popular Haydn Cello Concerto Number 2, in D Major. The piece was composed in 1783, the year before Haydn, aged 53, first met the now 28-year-old Mozart. Haydn had earned the informal title ‘Papa’, and the concerto is an example of how, with his greater freedom under a new contract with the Esterházy family, he was able to have his works published and therefore was able to broaden his repertoire.
Mendelssohn’s Italian Symphony is a sparkling and lively piece evoking the colours and sounds of Italy in the early 19th century. The work was premiered with the composer conducting the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra bringing the mediaeval folk dance rhythms of Tuscany to an audience in London in another early Summer concert, almost 200 years ago in 1833.
