The Voice Of God? Beethoven, Dvorak And Mozart In Blackburn

Date: Sunday 24th November 2013 19:30

Venue: King George's Hall, Blackburn

Containing some of the most extraordinarily inventive and uplifting music ever written for wind instruments, Mozart&sSerenade no.10for 13 instruments is rightly regarded as one of the jewels of Classical music. Dvo’Ä_Ü¢&ak&s ownWind Serenade, written a century later, takes its starting point from the 18thcentury tradition, but is woven into a gorgeously lyrical and dance-infused work.Rondino, a charming early wind Octet by Beethoven completes the programme.

“This was a music I’d never heard. Filled with such longing, such unfulfilled longing, it had me trembling. It seemed to me that I was hearing the very voice of God.”Antonio Salieri, speaking of K361, Mvt. IIIAdagioin the playAmadeus, by Peter Schaffer
