The urgent opening gesture of Mozart's Symphony No.40 ushers us into a dark and dramatic world of turbulent operatic emotion, in the words of one critic it is "a work of passion, violence and grief". This most famous of Mozart's symphonies is instantly recognisable and gripping. Equally powerful is Carl Weber's First Clarinet Concerto, a glittering star turn for an instrument with a mercurial temperament and a gift for virtuoso 'vocal' acrobatics. Clearly talent ran in the family: Weber was Mozart's cousin-in-law. In the spotlight is ANAM clarinettist Alexander Morris and Orchestra Victoria (no strangers to opera) directed from the violin by Concertmaster Adam Choulabi. Join us for tea and a morning of danger, drama and dazzling playing.
