Celebrating Mozart’s Birthday at SJUN
St John the Evangelist
LONDON MOZART PLAYERS
LMP 70th Birthday Season
Michael Collins: clarinet/director
Mozart Symphony No.27 in G K.199
Mozart Clarinet Concerto in A K. 622
Classical genius Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and clarinet virtuoso Michael Collins share a birthday – 27th January, just two weeks ahead of the London Mozart Players’ own 70th anniversary. There’s no better way to mark this triple celebration than to perform two of Mozart’s acclaimed works at our resident home, St John the Evangelist.
Mozart’s lyrical Clarinet Concerto is considered one of his greatest works. Though often played on the clarinet, you will be treated to a performance on the sonorous bassett clarinet, the instrument the work was originally written for. Distinguished artist Michael Collins will bring all his dazzling virtuosity to this classical favourite.
As an extra treat, directed by LMP Leader Simon Blendis, the orchestra will also perform Mozart’s Symphony No. 27, which is performed far less often than many of Mozart’s masterpieces
