Lock-In: Mozart Quintet for Piano and Winds
February 8 @ 9:15 pm£9.50
Mozart’s delightful masterpiece for piano and winds performed in-the-round in the intimate setting of an Aurora Lock-In.
Composed in 1784, the quintet is scored for an unusual combination of piano, oboe, clarinet, horn and bassoon, and was a firm favourite of the composer himself, who reported the work had ‘received the most remarkable applause’ at its premiere. Written in the midst of a flurry of new piano concerto commissions, the work accordingly takes on something of a concertante form, also featuring a daring cadenza scored for all five instruments in the work’s dance-like finale.
