The first part of an exploration into the world’s most famous composers, curated by Sinfonia Viva’s Principal Conductor Frank Zielhorst and featuring French horn soloist Alec Frank-Gemmill described by the Observer as 'an outstanding soloist.'
For this exceptional series Frank Zielhorst promises ‘enjoyable evenings, with a nice variety of styles and emotions, that explore the works of the masters and offer new perspectives on these composers.’
Immersive and powerful, experience the larger-than-life sound of the orchestra in this intimate and beautifully lit setting, with an evening peppered with musical swagger.
The evening features a double bill of horn concertos, including the most recognisable ever created, Mozart’s undeniable ‘Horn Concerto No.4.’ Ending on a euphoric high, the programme closes with one of Mozart's best known early symphonies and an absolute landmark in his career and music history.
