Concert in the Great Hall

Mozart! Rosendal Chamber Music Festival

10.08.17 - 13.08.17, Baroniet Rosendal Manor House & Gardens

The programme is created around the chamber music of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Despite all the wonderful chamber music Mozart wrote, only a few pieces are regularly performed in chamber music festivals. So I would like 2017 to be an intense Mozart celebration in which we perform not only the really famous works – such as the Clarinet Quintet and Piano Quartet no. 1 – but also show the diversity of Mozart’s extraordinary music. How often does one actually hear his great string quartets and quintets or his piano sonatas in concert, or when did you last hear his pieces for two pianos or his lieder? Together – as both musicians and audience – we look forward to delving into this wealth of repertoire in what is a uniquely, perfect setting for chamber music – Rosendal.
