Though Mozart’s short life spanned only 35 years, he lived it to the full. His music expresses the whole spectrum of human emotion from unbridled joy to profound despair, frequently revealing an irreverent wit.

Instantly recognisable from its opening, the elegant Eine kleine Nachtmusik K525 is contrasted with the bitingly satirical A Musical Joke, while the Adagio and Fugue in C minor reveals Mozart’s fascination with Baroque and Renaissance techniques. The programme culminates in the justly celebrated 40th symphony.

  • Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791)
        • Serenade for strings in G K525 'Eine kleine Nachtmusik'
        • A Musical Joke K522
        • Adagio and Fugue in C minor K546
        • Symphony No. 40 in G minor K550
